This makes FINDCALLERS and a couple of other things not work. I don''t know exactly what the problem is, but be careful.'

Can you characterize the problem, like is there any particular example that doesn''t work?'
I was having some trouble with PF and thought it might be FFILEPOS, but it turned out to be that the file FLOPPY is not LISPSOURCEFILEP (because it has no FILEMAP pointer in the header).  On the other hand, I have been mucking around with some of the generic i/o, so am suspicious of what I might have done.'
if I say FINDCALLERS(FIXSPELL RECORD) in the latest loadup, it returns without finding anything, but if I MOVD(FILEPOS FFILEPOS), it works.'

The problem seems to be that you remade IOCHAR from a system on Maxc that had the old definition of GLOBALRESOURCES in it.  I remade it again to get the appropriate initializations expressions onto the file (\\FFDELTA1.GLOBALRESOURCE instead of \FFDELTA1, etc).  I think you can LOADFROM(IOCHAR.DCOM) to get your FFILEPOS working again.  Or wait for the next loadup.'
