more RSTS/E strangeness....

ooh no it's that Hudson fellow again. Someone take his PDP 11 away, he
don't know how to use it..

There is a problem when I am logged to my RSTS/E(simh) in as [1,2].

I recently have been trying to edit my tty.cmd file, I am using teco, I
edit the file making a change, I save the file with the teco command
ex$$, ($=escape). Once out of teco I type tty.cmd to verify my changes.
I then use pip to copy tty.cmd to tty.bak and tty.old .

Then I shutdown RSTS/E and restart - to make sure my changes work.

On reboot RSTS can't run tty.cmd - claims it can't even find it. Of
course the startup procedure stops at that point so a lot of other
things don't get done (loading error managers, spool managers, batch
manager and defining CCL are the main things)

While in this state directory (run $direct) cant find tty.* none of the
tty files I copied remain..

I even tried saving a file named cmd.tty and it vanished too.

I type a new tty.cmd from scratch (using teco or pip) and reboot and
now **all** of them are back.

8^P What's up?

I think I need a nice RSTS/E boot camp.
