I can confirm that on osx too.

One need two pass of flvtool2 -UAt /tmp/tags.xml /tmp/file.flv to add 
the cuepoints to the flv.

I also tried to pipe he process without any luck.
I was thinking that flvtool2 needs a pass wih -U and use the infos to 
add the cuepoints :
./flvtool2 -U /Users/via/Desktop/demo.flv stdout | ./flvtool2 -At 
/Users/via/Desktop/tags.xml stdin /Users/via/Desktop/test.flv

BTW, we are only talking of the cuepoints list added in the header 
file, as I don't took time to test them as events for now…

I think there is also an issue with the line type of the tags.xml file.
It seems to use \n only, not \n\r neither \r.
