Subject[PATCH] Re: test12-pre6
	truncate() and ftruncate() return values are different from the
POSIX requirements and from the values returned by other Unices (and from
our own manpages, BTW). Trivial fix follows. Rationale: see truncate(2),
ftruncate(2), POSIX or try to call the thing on other Unices.

Please, apply.
