Emacs c-X c-W doesn't increment the "number of writes to file" fdb halfword

    EMACS doesn't open files that it writes to directly.  It opens _TECO_
    OUTPUT or ⊗[TECO.OUTPUT, and then does a rename.  This causes several
    problems on certain operating systems.  For instance, LPT: doesn't support

I checked a little further, and discovered that the RENAME command has
the same problem, so this seems to be a bug in RNAMF%. When a new file
with FBBK0 word 0,,0 is renamed to an existing file with fbbk0 word
1,,1, the resulting file has fbbk0 word 1,,1, where it should have 0,,0.
