	- With HP/UX, you definitely do not want to mix mmap-accesses of
	  a file with read()s and write()s of the same file.  Writes may
	  get lost, and reads will see stale data, unless you do lots of
	  msyncs (which is a pain).  The buffindexed code uses mmap-accesses
	  in all but four places, so I modified those last few pwrite()s
	  to use mmap instead.  With this change, buffindexed has been
	  working reliably on my servers.  Without this change, the OV
	  buffers invariably become corrupt.
