[Coco] NOS-9 and Basic09/RunB woes

When I had my CoCo3 and OS-9 L2, I could write a procedure that would check for a no parameter error and have my program list the built-in help in response. I have tried with both the 6809 and 6309 versions of NOS-9 L2, and both systems hang when I try to run a Basic09 I-Code program from the command line with no parameters when it is expecting a parameter.
Also, in the stock OS-9, I could use ctrl-w to pause a listing in Basic09, but neither NOS-9 versions allow it. ctrl-w is ignored until the listing is completed.
I don't know if these issues are with the OS or with the NOS versions of RinB and Basic09. Has anyone else had experience with this, and is there any possibility that someone who knows assembly could/would be willing to look at the system's source and see if they can tell what's going on?
