   |  This machine has /tmp on a ffs file system?
 I also wondered if that might be related, and ran the test program with the 
 file on both tmpfs and ffs ... no change in symptom.
 For the record in the PR, I observed the incorrect (according to POSIX -- one
 might argue that if the file is obviously not changed, nor should the
 mtime be, but let's not go there) behaviour on 6.99.30, 7.99.23 and 7,99,44
 and correct behaviour in 7.0_STABLE (Dec 13, 2016)
