Subject Re: [PATCH] java task doesn't correctly handle changing drives under Windows
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2001 17:16:45 GMT

Could one of the committers please pick up this patch?  It should really
go into 1.3.  I worked out a similar fix just before code freeze but this
patch is simpler than mine for the Win 9x part of the fix.
