Well,it's on the other system, down the hall, which happens to have
windoze booted right now so I can't go verify this, but my recollection
is that there was no error message, it just failed to list the files
when we double-clicked on the directory name. Doing the same thing with
1.4.1 it listed them all in the file window. They are all <something>.xac
and <something>.log.

I recall that we explicitly listed one of the filenames but it rejected
it. unfortunately I canot get the message for you right now. I'll try
tomorrow and get back to you.
