If you don''t have a {DSK}INIT.LISP, the system will ask you for one when it starts up the sysout. Way back before we had control over typein from multiple processes worked out, we fixed it so that it would ask for the INIT file in the PROMPT window. However, once we got things worked out, it now asks for the password in the TYPESCRIPT window.'
This inconsistency is annoying. It is more annoying because it happens frequently. I think the simplest thing to do is to take back out the use of PROMPTWINDOW here.'
In general, we want to reconsider the current (overuse) of promptwindow; this is one instance with a fairly clear action.'
