I think you overlooked that in your example, you called freopen() 
_twice_.  The first time you replaced the stdout handle by the file 
"stdout.dat", the second time you closed that and replaced stdout by a 
handle to the console.

When your example fclosed() the FILE *f returned by the first freopen(), 
you actually closed stdout itself.
