    Copying an OEM-encoded text file to CON: gorks TCC. For instance, COPY C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT CON: causes a GPF here. Copying a UTF-16 file to CON: does not trigger the GPF.

    (No, I do not have any actual need to do this; just something I stumbled across.)

    I can confirm that this is fixed in 13.04.55 (and agree that it's a silly command anyway.)
