    Wow, I would never have thought that changing the location of
    the FUNLOCKFILE() call would have had that effect, but now looking
    at _funlockfile() in libc_r/uthread/uthread_file.c ... it's obvious.
    That's really terrible programming on the original author's part, FILE
    structure locks should not be dependant on the contents of the fp.  The
    whole thing is conditionalized on the file descriptor being non-negative.
    Hiten, when you back out that fclose change put a big fat comment in
    there describing why FUNLOCKFILE() can't be moved.
	Oops, I committed before reading this message; will add the
	comment for sure.  Stupid, thats what it is... :-)
	Thanks to 'walt' and others for telling us before release.
