[tpm] Making IO::Handle objects "hot"

I've got a program that calls 'yum install ...'. I've set my stdout to 
hot ($|=1;), but there is no output at all during the package download 
stage. I am not entirely convinced that this is a problem with 
IO::Handle's object being hot though, as when I do finally get output, 
it starts after the download stage.

So if this is a buffering issue, how could I turn it off? If it's that 
'yum' is writing the download info to somewhere else, how could I 
capture that inside perl?
