Subject: Bug (?) report and question about the "Out of mem" err in 1.07

1) It was my understanding that if you did not set the GO32TMP variable,
GO32 would open its paging file in the root directory of the current drive.
At least in 1.07, I believe there is a problem here.  I was on the C:
drive (local hard disk with oogles of free space [> 100M]) and did:

	GO32 l:prog ...

where L: is a network drive that has almost no free space (< 300K).
Got "Fatal disk error opening swap file" (or some such).
Setting GO32TMP to C:/TMP fixed the problem.  I am guessing, but I think it
may have tried to open the paging file on the L: drive.

2) Hypothesis: In 1.07, the 4M limit thing does not manifest if you are
running VCPI.  True or false?

I normally run with QEMM, so do not usually see this problem, but I happened
to boot up with HIMEM.SYS, and got "Error: out of conventional memory".
