FS#10587 - Lua plugin: bad behaviour for io.open(path, 'w')

If you write “some text” in a file with the ‘w’ flag, then write again “shorter” in the same file, the file will contain “shorterxt” (but should contain “shorter”). The length of the file didn’t change.

You can try this with the little script I attached.
Everything is fine with the ‘w+’ flag though.

This occurs in r22628 and all previous versions.

The culprit should be around those lines:

In r22645.

I found a fix. The O_TRUNC flag was needed.
I filed a patch here: http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/10592
