As a beta tester, I have several bootable partitions and need to use the specific files on the partition I booted from. adding a path to dopus in the environment editer resolves that path eg. I enter sys:c and it changes it to os4beta:c which means if I'm running the public release to check anything it's still using beta components.
It also prevents sharing configs easily as the receiver has to edit standard system paths to fit his volume name.
I also have different versions of things that I change the assign to use them. but because the paths are resolved I can not use an assign there.
Please just remove the resolving so what the user enters is what is used.
