bug fixed (enwrite.pl)

Graca Carvalho (and someone else) found a bug which caused
delted entries to be displayed by whoisd. This actually is a
bug in the "dbm" buffering of perl. I have fixed that by
changing enwrite not to write long versions of unknown objects.
I have checked to see if this breaks anything else and found
nothing. I hope I haven't overlooked anything.

A context diff of enwrite.pl is included below. A new distribution
is in the usual place.
