I had this strange occurrence having to do with the DIRHNG device, namely
the Gould spooler uses it to detect when files are written into .GLPR.;
Somehow this directory got wedged in a state where ALLFILES in LISP returned
NIL for it, when .GLPR.^F returned a list showing files. Now as far as I
can tell, the only thing ALLFILES does is to open files to .FILE. (DIR)
etc. and I guess this lost somehow. Anyway, when ITS got reloaded, everything
was winning again with no changes to either ALLFILES or the spooler.
I doubt you can learn anything from this report, but I just thought you
might want to know there is something strange here in case it happens again.
Are there any other frequently used programs that use DIRHNG?
