nmap log_write patch
From: Michael Coulter <mjc () bitz ca>

Nmap-3.81 on OpenBSD/amd64 was crashing due to bus errors. I've tracked
it down, and this looks to be the culprit.

From this url:
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/vprintf.html

"As these functions invoke the va_arg macro, the value of ap after the 
return is unspecified."

It looks like ap needs to be re-initialized between the vfprintf() 
and vsnprintf() calls.
