Subject: Change in HostFiles
To: blackbox at oberon.ch

I wrote a small application to traverst all the directories on my
windows machine and list the files.  This program would not list
directories that started with a dot "."

I traced this behavior to HostFiles.  I made a change in procedure
LocList.  You may search for the IF statement, and the third occurance
should be in the correct procedure.

I propose that this be considered a bug and a corresponding bugfix.

                        IF find # invalid THEN
                                        (* alm Feb 3, 2007  allow
subdirectories beginning with "." *)
                                        IF (KERNEL32.FileAttrDirectory
IN fd.attributes)
                                                & ~((fd.name$=".") OR
                                                & (LEN(fd.name$) <
