I ran your first 'foo' script with the first crontab and I got all 16 (2
x 8) lines, without any stomping.  I thought maybe if I set auto
flushing ($| = 1) I'd get some intermixed lines between the process, but
still the same basic output.

I thought appends were supposed to be atomic, but maybe its system
dependent.  I'm using FC3 on a Dell Inspiron 4000 FWIW.
