I have a shel script which works fine, but displays the message : The signal SIGPIPE was received. is there anyway to prevent that from displaying? this is my code:

 find $dir -depth -type d   | while read dir; do
          find "$dir" -name "pref*.xml" | grep -q . || echo "$dir" | xargs  rm -r

which basically if the directory does not contain pref.xml, it removes the entire directory, otherwise it does nothing.
