Good observation.  Have you actually tested the JDK to see what it
does in this situation?  Is the file actually opened "write only"?

I take it that you are referring to the Java write() method I added to the
FileDescriptor class and not the nativeWriteBuf() method.  I'm ok with
modifying this.  I do typically want to use longs for native calls.

Why not?  All of the rest of the native methods that return values
return longs.

Does it?  I certainly didn't intend for it to.

Thanks for the feedback.
