MKDIR(DSK) where DSK is already a coredevice (created by making a call'
to COREDEVICE) doesn''t get rid of the coredevice and further, when you'
open a file to device DSK you''ve got a coredevice file.'
P.S. It seems like a temporary fix for us is to call (\DEFINEDEVICE'
''DSK) before calling MKDIR to get rid of the previous device definition,'
but I don''t know what other ramifications that might have.  Is there a'
quick fix for this one?  /mdy'
