You're absolutely right, I can't find any reason why truncate_ ended up
as an int while everything else indicates it's supposed to be
streamsize. I probably forgot to change it to streamsize at some point..

I'm curious, was the initialization
producing any warning on your platform ?

Anyway, I fixed it in CVS (expect some delay for change to appear in the
anonymous CVS).

Thanks for reporting this bug, with so much precision !
