Applied Alec Wolman <>'s dropsbr.c patch:

  In the map_write routine, a call is made to map_open and this call is supposed
  to set the "clear" variable to 0 or 1, depending on whether the map file is
  empty or not.  In mh6.8.3, this worked because map_open would set "clear" by
  calling the mbx_Xopen routine.  In nmh, the code for mbx_Xopen was merged into
  mbx_open, but the interface for mbx_open doesn't support the clear variable,
  so that functionality was lost.  The map_open interface still contains "int
  *clear" in the prototype, but never sets it.

  My patch eliminates "clear" from the map_open interface (I checked to make
  sure that map_write is the only client of map_open).  Furthermore, my patch
  also sets the "clear" variable properly at the beginning of map_write by
  calling fstat().  This eliminates the bug in that the value of "clear" being
  used later in the routine was just stack garbage.

  Having a bad value of clear causes this next bug to be triggered: The fp file
  pointer was being opened with fdopen, but in two of the three switch cases it
