With respect to the two problems I mentioned:

1. running root preexec too early, my thinking cap was not on.

2. Error codes ...

   I have checked out different error codes (mkstemp and a few fiddles made
it quicker),

and returning ERRinvdev (07) generates the following message in Win95.

     The network resource type is not correct.

Not sure if this is an easier message to deal with than the not-found one.
