Currently, if the user does csv:export multiple times, AtoM will just keep appending the same records to the same CSV file. This is somewhat unexpected behavior, one would expect a new file to be created with each csv:export I think.

We should probably change the fopen() mode from 'a' to 'w'. I think some minor refactoring around deciding when to write CSV headers might need changing too. Hopefully it isn't too bad.

Verified - works as expected when I export completed jobs in CSV format, export search and browse results, and export clipboard results
