Running the following command when source and destination files reside on a
NetWare 3.12 server seems to cause trouble for Novell's client software (Client
32, version 3.01) under Windows 98SE:
python jlines.py 12 < input.txt | python bsr.py "SYS_ID = -1" -v > cc_tmp_1.txt
This command line, executed from a DOS box, works perfectly if the files
involved are in the current directory on the host computer. When the current
directory containing the files is on a NetWare volume, input.txt gets written to
stdout line by line, instead of being read into to jlines.py. After one line
appears, processing stops and may be continued by pressing the return key.
Eventually, after 10 or 12 presses, the return key just produces beeps and the
operation must be abandoned.
