By my reading, this constructs a strstreambuf with setg(buf, buf, buf)
and setp(buf, buf+4), and strmode == 0.  (An attempt to read would 
result in a call to underflow, which would return EOF.)  The call to 
freeze() has no effect, because it only operates on dynamic bufs.  
The sputc() puts an 'x' at *buf, and the strcmp returns 1.

Where am I mistaken?  Alternatively, what did you mean to say?
