Failed read form data on stdin

Bug Description

Ubuntu 15.04
PdfTk 2.02-2

When trying to pipe an xfdf data to pdftk (cat data.xml | pdftk file.pdf fill_form - output filled.pdf flatten) , it produces this error: "Failed read form data on stdin".

When providing the xfdf file via an argument (pdftk file.pdf fill_form data.xml output filled.pdf flatten), there are no issues.

Reverting to 2.01-1 removes the issue.
