    GSB gave me the magic incantation:
    to solve the problem.

That's okay for init files, but what about general loads?
The problem yesterday was caused by a user doing
several times until he got his small, trivial file of test
data setup correctly for his application.  The LOAD never
did a CLOSE after reading in the file, and the computation
never got anywhere close to doing a GC, which would have
forced closing.  And the result of this was that the system
got more hopelessly wedged than I have ever seen it get!!!
