kernel 2042 fdconfig.sys install param not passing switches to command
I noticed was getting more messages appearing during my bootup with kernel 2042 compared to 2041. Upon investigation, I found it is not passing any switches given in fdconfig.sys install=<command> <swiches> to the command. This is the case also of installhigh.
* tm.exe (inkutils) switches to 80x43 mode as directed (/43)
Confirmed behaviour under 2042
* ansi.com ignores /q and prints usage messages
* tm.exe does not switch to 80x43 mode, instead reports current mode consistent as if no switch given.
This and the NUL drive/dir bug I reported several days ago, with a hotfix kernel provide by Tom, are pretty big bugs. For now I've gone back to 2041 as am concerned about other nasties I've yet to discover.
