For: Kermit 95 2.1.3

This file lists bugs or other problems in Kermit 95 and its operating environment. There is a lot of information here, organized chronologically, and so it is recommended you use a text editor or Web browser to do case-insensitive searches for keywords to turn up what you are looking for.

Bugs that have been fixed are listed here by number and name, but, except for the bugs that were fixed since version 1.1.16, the descriptions of fixed bugs have been moved to a separate file.

If you do not have the current version of Kermit 95, please upgrade to it:

if you are experiencing bugs or problems, they might already be fixed. Also, the BUGS.TXT / BUGS.HTM file that comes with the current release will have a more up-to-date list of bugs and hints than an older copy. If you do have the current version of K95, also consult:

In this document, except where otherwise noted, the term Windows 95 or Windows 9x refers to Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows ME, but not to Windows NT, 2000, or XP. Similarly, the term Windows NT also includes Windows 2000 and XP, but not Windows 95, 98, or ME.

BUG CATEGORY
(M) Microsoft Windows bug.
(I) An IBM OS/2 bug.
(X) A feature that is disabled in Kermit 95 because of an operating-system bug.
(Z) A bug in the Dialer caused by a bug in the GUI development system that was used to build it.
(V) Bug or restriction in vendor code, e.g. in 3rd-party TCP/IP stacks.
(K) A Kermit 95 limitation or bug.
(D) A documentation error.
(C) A hardware / System / Drivers Configuration problem.
( ) Not a bug.

NOTE: The February 1996 Service Pack from Microsoft did NOT fix any of the bugs in the M and X categories. The September 1996 OEM SR2 release fixed at least one of these bugs (Bug #79) but is not available as a patch to earlier releases.

IMPORTANT: Windows NT 4.0 for Intel shipped with a dangerous but little-known bug that can randomly corrupt your data. Microsoft has fixed the problem in Service Pack 1 for Windows NT 4.0. It is strongly recommended that users of Windows NT 4.0 download and install this and all later fixes.
