A write to a sequential assess file followed by tow rewind statements would 
truncate the file to zero length.The fix seems to be to put the unit into 
read mode after a rewind statement.

Tested on i686-linux.
Applied to mainline.

	* io/rewind.c (st_rewind): Reset unit to read mode.
	* gfortran.dg/rewind_1.f90: New test.

! { dg-do run }
! Check that rewind doesn't delete a file.
! Writing to the file truncates it at the end of the current record.  Out
! IO library was defering the actual truncation until the file was rewound.
! A second rewind would then (incorrectly) think the file had just been
! written to, and truncate the file to zero length.

end program
