Okay, it looks like we have confirmation that gdbm is not fully ported
w.r.t. text/binary issues. (Its inclusion in the official distribution
predated the *requirement* that this be completed -- at the time it was
only a suggestion). So, I hereby solicit patches that change
open(...., "r") to open(...., "rb")
open(...., "w") to open(...., "wb") etc.
fopen(...., FLAGS) to fopen(...., FLAGS | O_BINARY)
at all **appropriate** places in the gdbm code.
