    ubik: Avoid unlinking garbage during recovery
    In urecovery_Interact, if any of our operations fail around
    calling DISK_GetFile, we will jump to FetchEndCall and eventually
    unlink 'pbuffer'. But if we failed before opening our .DB0.TMP file,
    the contents of 'pbuffer' will not be initialized yet.
    During most iterations of the recovery loop, the contents of 'pbuffer'
    will be filled in from previous loops, and it should always stay the
    same, so it's not a big problem. But if this is the first iteration of
    the loop, the contents of 'pbuffer' may be stack garbage.
    Solve this in two ways. To make sure we don't use garbage contents in
    'pbuffer', memset the whole thing to zeroes at the beginning of
    urecovery_Interact(). And then to make sure we're not reusing
    'pbuffer' contents from previous iterations of the loop, also clear
    the first character to NUL each time we arrive at this area of the
    recovery code. And avoid unlinking anything if pbuffer starts with a
    Commit 44e80643 (ubik: Avoid unlinking garbage) fixes the same issue,
    but only fixed it in the SDISK_SendFile codepath in remote.c.
