I agree.  However, when trying to get things changed in the core
release by the X Consortium, I've learned to prefer *minimal* patches.
There is another place in the same file where the XC explicitly casts
the second param of ftruncate to (off_t), so I decided to go with
their way.

I'd never do this in my own code.
