The "2 not meaningful refname" error comes from trying to parse a server
OPEN response (which is only sent in the case of successfully opening a
file) from an old server which does not understand some recent improvments

incompatible with existing file servers, without adaquate efforts to ensure
all file servers were updated before installing it. You have two options.
One is to find a band with system 74 on it somewhere, and continue to use
that until someone updates SPEECH (as I must update the VMS file servers).
Another is to load the file "MC:RWK;PATH", which is a patch file which allows
the system to understand either syntax. (It should be copied to AI:RWK;PATH
as well, I guess).
I believe there is some other situation which loading my patch file does not
fix. I don't recall for sure, but at least it isn't as important as being
able to read and write files.
In the meantime, the apropriate person should import a new file server to
