Subject: LOAD after COPYFILE from Vax/Unix causes "attempt to operate on a broken file. D

Lisp Version: 

Description: '
I can consistently repeat the error': copyfile from sumex to safe, then try to read the file (load, compile, etc.).  The message comes up "attempt to operate on a broken file.  Do not proceed until the problem has been resolved" and Leaf breaks with error 1015.   The stack shows DOPMAP inside of  SKIPSEPRS inside of UPDATEFILEMAP.  I gave a full report of this to Schmidt in mid-May.  (As you might guess, UPDATEMAPFLG is T.)'

The third problem, about PUPFTP and End-of-line conventions, is a little less clear to me what the problem/symptom is. Perhaps more details about what doesn''t work will be forthcoming.'
The report said "Schmidt suggested using PUPFTP with end-of-line set to Transparent. However, it does not appear that PUPFTP sets the version number correctly. When I move over a new file and do INFILEP, I get the old version.  (DIR doesn''t work, so I have no easy way of finding out what is really there.)" '
This leads me to believe that there is (a) some problem with DIR, and (b) some problem with INFILEP or PUPFTP, but exactly what, I''m not sure.'
