  v3.8 attempted load of radiosity file core dumps.

For future reference.

On Ubuntu 18.04 g++9

povray bogus.pov Radiosity_File_Name="RadSamples" +rfo +rfi

coredumps unless the RadSamples file exists. The file can be empty
and things are fine but it must exist. We certainly should not
crash, and in my view given how +rfo always appends to any existing 
file, the user should not have to change the rfi flag use based on 
whether the file exists or not.
