In system `29.95 NWS, with microcode 669, on LISP Machine Eight:
ZWEI considers FOO > LUSER; AI: and FOO > LUSER; DSK: to be different
files and buffers. I.e. if I have one in a buffer and try to get
back to it by C-X C-B or C-X C-F specifying the other, it tries to
read the file in again.
If MC were your file-computer, they WOULD be sifferent files. I'm not
sure it is ZWEI's responsibility to grok all the devices to this extent.
Aftre all, Lisp Machines will eventually run with a wide variety of file
computers. Perhaps it is the file computer's responsibility to support
an EQ operation for its file system.
