I have some nickle code that uses fprintf to write to a bunch of
different files, but at first I got only zero-length files. Bart glanced
at it and suggested I explicitly close the files, at which point I got
the output I expected. Bart says this is a bug.

(Hopefully) relevant excerpts:

import File;
void gen_test(file in, file out) {
    /* ... stuff happens here, then: */

    for (int i =3D 0; i < 7; i++) {
        nut x =3D spin_nut(nuts[i], spin[i]);
        fprintf(in, "%d", x[0]);
        for (int j =3D 1; j < 6; j++)
            fprintf(in, " %d", x[j]);
        fprintf(in, "\n");=20
    close(in); /* added */

    for (int i =3D 0; i < 7; i++)=20
        fprintf(out, "%d %d\n", i + 1, spin[i] + 1);
    close(out); /* added */

for (int i =3D 1; i < 50; i++)
    gen_test(open(sprintf("In/%d", i), "w"), open(sprintf("Out/%d", i), "w"=
