Subject: Memset(x,y,0) bugs in Owl-3.0

I did a scan of the Owl-3.0 sources to find places where memset(x,y,0) was
used when it should have been memset(x,0,y).

The results are>

./rpm-4.2/db/btree/bt_open.c:           memset(buf, dbp->pgsize, 0);
./rpm-4.2/db/hash/hash_open.c:          memset(buf, dbp->pgsize, 0);
./slang-1.4.6/demo/pager.c:   memset ((char *) line, sizeof
(File_Line_Type), 0);
