I think this is now fixed. Attached is the patch i just committed to
CVS. It include a simple test program that seeks past the end of the
file so putting a hole into it. It then closes the file, opens it up
again and reads back the contents checking it contains what is
expected. Its not a particularly thorough test so there could still be
bugs hiding out somewhere.
