Hi Dustin,

the first fix is the correct one. Obviously, one has to flush the
buffers of an output stream before changing the file position, this is
what the call to ecl_force_output() was doing. The second patch is
wrong and I would like to know what problems you experienced during
shut down because of the use of ecl_force_output(). Is it
reproducible? On what platform?
