Never assume its a win95 error  "Phallus"/
I have had pfiles and other files come out to be 0 bytes.  For example.
lets say you opened up a file to be written to.. something got screwed
and closed the file..  just an example of what may have happened.

  For some reason.. i dont even remember seeing that patch that saves
files that way.. my memory is so bad now days from 60+ hrs propgramming
per week that i dont even know what i was working on at the time.

  What i do know tho.. is one day i had like 100 *.save files in the lib/
for who knows why.. and believe it or not they were all 0 bytes.. so
explain that one.

  If it does it again.. id go back throught the code.. checking the sizes
of the variables.. and of course a glitch that might be within.
