patch for appending instead of rewriting the tested modulus

Building moduli file with big prime numbers (8192) takes a lot of time
especially in the screening process, so the introduction of the -K
option was greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately when interrupted and ran again you loose all the previous
tested primes which is almost certainly not the expected behaviour as
it takes days to recover them...

Here's a very small patch to prevent that.
