    Fix User.number increment beyond lastuser issue

    When the 'number' property of an instance of User was incremented beyond the last user, the call to fgetuserdat() on subsequent property 'get' operation would fail and zero-out the user structure (including the user number). This resulted in an infinite loop in load/birthdays.js where the user number would go from lastuser to 1 in one operation (u.number++).

    Log Message:
    Don't clobber an open user.dat file descriptor in js_CreateUserObject()

    Likely fix for the user.dat open file descriptor leak:
    If js_CreateUserObject(cx,parent,cfg,"name",...) is called multiple times
    (e.g. before login and after login), the successive calls will reuse the previously allocated JS object and allocated private data memory. However, the private data memory (which includes the descriptor of an open user.dat file,
    if it has been opened), was always zeroed, even if it was being reused. This would leak open file descriptor.

    So any (pre)login scripts or web scripts that use the "user" object (which
    is all zeroed-out before login) and then allows a user to subsequently login, would leak a file descriptor.

    Log Message:
    Add User close() method

    This can be used to force a close of the user.dat file, if open. Rather than waiting for an out of scope User to get garbage-collected, this method could
    be used to force a close of the user.dat file, if it's open.

    Make legacy/alias properties non-enumerable: computer, modem

    I noticed these redundant properties were being logged for every logon in logon.jsonl. We don't need these properties separately enumerable, and really they shouldn't be used anyway.

    computer is an alias of host_name
    modem is an alias of connection
