Broken Dired

    Date: Saturday, 10 December 1983, 16:38-EST
    From: Glenn A. Kramer <GAK at MIT-OZ>
    In ZWEI in Release 5.0 [GC'd Beta Test rev 3], dusty plum, on Lisp Machine Buddy Holly (3600):

    I read files from directory oz:ps:<gak.bal>; everything went OK.

    When I did Dired <gak.bal>*.*.*, I got 0 files. I tried (NETI:RESET) but it
    was still broken.

[running the SCRC copy of the Beta Test world] i could not reproduce this bug.

(neti:reset) is probably not the right hammer here.  even if it was, in release 5 every
time you punch the network system in the nose with (neti:reset) you should follow it up
with a (neti:enable).  [this is in contrast with release 4 systems in which you could
often get away with only a (chaos:reset), omitting a (chaos:enable).]

but, it was probably not the right hammer.
