Thanks for the explanation. Dialing twice is probably faster than
rebooting DOS in my case. I was hoping I could just type some command to
open the stale lock (maybe include it in a dial script).. I am still
going online in DOS because DOS kermit has a scroll buffer in MDA mode.
But soon there may be an 'mgacon'!
