Re: [AQ_NFS] v1x Testing
- Dear Gaylon....
I have reported the "T" problem that I am having with both versions,
and the ALT+A+O issue. Everything else seems to be working pretty
much the same as the .17 version. the "T" problem seems to be unique
to my database but the other issue is just a nusiance.
