Well the thing I'm trying to understand is if doing
with zero length is a "sticky" write time set, or
a "normal" write time set. That's the part of the
data model I still need to understand (and will
probe with more tests).

If it's a "normal" write time set, then my
changes should stay - if it's a "sticky" write
time set, then we should revert to your code
with an extra set_write_time_fsp() call at
the appropriate places in SET_END_OF_FILE, SET_ALLOCATION_SIZE

Still working on those tests (need to do some
VMware admin at home on an upgraded machine
first :-).
