FIFOs different from SunOS/Linux?

Is reading from a FIFO where nobody is writing to yet treated different
on FreeBSD (3.4) than on SunOSS or Linux? It must be, because Ive got
some strange examples (not C, though), and I try to find a workaround.
On SunOS and Linux selecting this FIFO works fine, on FreeBSD something goes
wrong and I always get an EOF (the FIFO is openen with O_NOBLOCK).
