I'm having two errors that are hard to reproduce reliably. May be someone else can. Sometimes the dir color for DIRS of bright white is ignored. It happens very rarely and other colors are ok. I have a hunch that it is a driver issue and not tcc. In v10 my standard build batch file repeatedly launches a compiled perl script which repeatedly launches cmd with the compiler. It often fails one of the launches during the build. I have not seen this in v9. I wish I could give a better error report. I know full well how useless the report I'd by itself; I'm hoping someone else can provide enough information to make it worthwhile. I have a vague memory of similar batch file issues early in v9. Can anyone dig up what may have been addresssed there? -- Jim Cook 2009 Saturdays: 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, 12/12 and 5/9, 9/5, 7/11, 11/7. Next year they're Sunday.
