Description: '
We''ve been having very serious password problems here lately. '
They happen intermittently.  '
The first problem is that no files can be written onto the Lisp and Lispusers directories on Rosebowl.  Attempts using COPYFILE are followed by a request for the connect password.  After the correct password is given, a break window opens declaring': "FILE WON''T OPEN".  This is the same as the response to an incorrect password.'
Chat, on the other hand, will accept absolutely anything as a password when trying to connect to one of these directories.  I CONNected to Lispusers and typed garbage in for the password.  Then I successfully executed a DELete.  I tried simply using DIR to connect to the directory, and proceeded to DELete a file without the system asking me to type in a password.'
Judy and Lorraine have also encountered these problems.'
We are all using the same Full.sysout (8 June).'

This is a known problem, which has been fixed, and will be in the Harmony  release (see AR 458).'
"Chat allows you to delete protected files"'
This is not Lisp''s problem --- all chat does is give you a way to talk to the telnet server on the IFS rosebowl.  Try chatting to rose from Tajo, and see if you have the same problem.'
Why are you still using the 8-Jun Full.sysout, rather than the 20-Jun sysout (Carol)?'


Test Case:  CHAT, and the COPYFILE function
