This does occasionally cause some problems, however. Some programs
(e.g., dBase) spawn tasks by writing out a $$$.SUB file and then
terminating. Naturally, as conventional CP/M programs, they write the file
to the current user area. Z33 and Z34 will not see the file at all. I
beleive that patches have been published for some of the programs to make
them write to A0:. The ZSDOS DOS path searching facility can also solve
this problem (and probably ZCPR30's problem, as well).
