Art, you may be interested to know that the bug in the COPY command also
exists in the RS-DOS 1.1 rom. The bug is ACTUALLY in the CLOSE routine.
When an I/O error occurs during COPY, the FCB pointers are pointing to
the wrong place and the close function blows the stack away, causing
the COCO to crash. There is a simple fix for that bug which I implimented
in RGB-DOS and I will be glad to give you the source for that fix if
you are interested. It is only 5 or 6 lines of code… nothing big.

..Roger.

    Thanks, Roger. I WOULD be interested in seeing that fix for the CLOSE bug.
