Trying to locate before the begin of a file is accepted without a returning
error. Run e.g. the following program:
This contradicts with the former semantics of lseek which reports the
error EINVAL (invalid argument).
Are these changes intended or is it a bug ?
Interestingly, I just tried it under SunOS, and it succeeds without
error. POSIX is ambiguous on the subject.
