   Seems like there's a rash of this going aroound.  First it was VDIR,
now SAP.  I guess the only way to avoid this sort of thing is for ALL
RCP/M SYSOPS to copy any un-heard-of file to a floppy (unless this joker
renames it to an existing program... shiver) and test it out there.  It's
certainly an inconvenience for RCP/M SysOps, but it's better than losing
the contents of your hard drive.

Downloaded SAP41.LBR and like a Sap I ran sap41. Lost 5 megabytes of
files. Erased all files then formatted 90% of directory tracks and
left me with mostly files that were already erased (maybe all it left
was files already erased).
