Tom, screenshots at showing kernel 2042 always 
identifying e:\nul as present (attrib e:\nul or if exist e:\nul), even though 
it is not. Kernel 2041 correctly identifies it as not present.

A fix for this would be great so I can again check for drive/dir existence 
using the NUL filename.

Thank you,Nando

I tried to reproduce this here, and I think that it behaves exactly as
it should.

can you be more specific how it fails ?
