Well, we need to make sure that the (very basic) program

      program main
      character*10 x
      write (10,'(A)') '1111'
      write (10,'(A)') '2222'
      close (10)
      write (10,'(A)') '3333'
      close (10)
 100  continue
        read (10,'(A)',end=200) x
        write (*,'(A)') x
      goto 100
 200  continue

continues to work as expected: That probably means truncating on
close and rewind.

I can see what I can do, but I have little time... (as always)
