There actually seems to be a bit of a problem in the
interaction with the system when it launches mame.

If I run this:

import os

def run_mame_selection(selection):
    os.system("C:\\mame096b\\mame.exe"+ selection)
selection = " tnzs"

mame reports files missing, but I can launch the game
manually- I suspect that this is some sort of error
that occurs normally but is bypassed on launch and
that  my one-shot attempt to launch the thing cannot
handle. I think I need to have a wee look at
