Hi FD users,

I've seen some random comments about EMM386 allocating UMBs for its own use but 
I have not been
able to locate the source code to check this out.

(Yes, I expect several comments deprecating EMM386 and directing me to JEMM386.)

When using EMS both EMM386 and JEMM386 will allocate a UMB as a transfer area.  
But what about when
using the NOEMS option?  It looks like JEMM386 has an option to avoid high 
memory (ie UMBs) = NOHI.

But what's the behavior of EMM386?  Will it allocate some of the UMBs it 
creates for its own use?

I would rather that this not be the case and am in the process of migrating to 
JEMM386 with the NOHI option but want
to understand the behavior better.
