When working for a longer time with THE under Windows
2000 an abend does occur.

Environment :
Windows 2000 SP 4
THE 3.2 B1 (the32B1.exe)
Object Rexx 2.1

Scenario :

1) Open a command prompt
2) Edit a file for a longer period of time (30-40
interactions)

Or :

Edit several files

After the abend did occur it is no longer possible to start
THE in that command prompt window. You must open a new
one if you want to continue.

    Update :

    I found the reason for the abends and the restart problem :

    THE was started using a procedure which appended the
    'extras' directory to the Windows PATH variable. With each
    start this variable was getting longer until finally it
    caused THE to crash.
    So, creating a very long Windows PATH variable and then
    trying to start THE is the way to reproduce the problem.
