Is fputc() here somehow being evaluated twice? What happens
if you move the fputc() call outside the printf() call?
Or create it separately than this program.

My suggestion of course fails to explain why there's only one 'B'.
I would create the initial file separately from the test program.
I don't recall, but is there a guaranteed fflush() on open file
descriptors at program exit? Does an explicit call to fflush() do

FWIW, this is the same output I get on both a linux and macos box.
