Process dumping was disabled, use DUMPPROC / PROCDUMP to enable it.

As this is not likely to be all that common, we can put this on a back burner or close as WONTFIX. I was just thinking that there should be a more graceful way to tell the poor idiot user that we don't know where home is!

It's an OS/2 specific bug... in fact, I'm not sure why the code in question is necessary.... will do some more testing when I get a minute...

Actually, Paul, of greater importance are 0000589, 0000590, and 0000622, as wildcards not working can be a real pain. This, however, would be an issue for Warp 4 users with no HOME variable set.
