Shouldn't write/fwrite block until all has been written?
Especially since fwrite(3) says:
The function fwrite() returns a value less than nmemb only if a write
error has occurred.
Plus, the error only appears on the fixit boot... Ok, the other
machine I've tried it on is over 3x as fast but I doubt that really
makes a difference.
I think I'm going to build a bdes with some debugging code sprinkled
in to see what's going on.
