Alright, stepping back from the gigantic mess that is fcntl() and looking
at the core problem .... can anyone think of a reason that creat() was used
in preference to ftruncate() way back when?  I see it was that way in
mh-6.8.5, but that also used ftruncate() in another file so it's not like
that interface hasn't existed forever.

I think just using ftruncate() would solve this problem, right?  Ralph,
could you give this a try?
