[Coco] NOS9 mb script

Granted, I built my startup the old way, without the -z. However, why
would it work fine from TERM_80 and not from TERM_32? I'll make the
switch to the -z and hope it works from TERM_32. Thanks.

Have you tried modifying the scripts in the NitrOS-9 distribution rather
than using EZGen? Maybe the problem is with EZGen rather than scbbt and

Perhaps you should post the relevant lines from startup. I suggest that
you are not using the syntax wcreate -z which the OS-9 manual indicate
should be used if the command is in a startup file. Look at p. 6-99 in
the SO-9 user's manual.
