I will gladly elaborate on this bug.
I am currently running c4 on a p133/32MB connected to a Novell 3.12
network. AutoCad is local to my machine, the drawing files are on the
I would expect that AutoCAD would put the Autosave file in the drawing
directory as it has up to c4. But this is what happens:
When it is time for autosave, first I get a message that the save file
is trying to be written to an invalid directory so it is being saved to
the temporary files directory. This directory is on my local hard
drive, not on the network. If my machine crashes, I cannot retrieve the
sv$ file from the network. This bug affects the security of my work.
Secondly, after the .sv$ file has been erroneously written to my local
hard drive, I can wait approx. 3-10 seconds and then my hard drive light
turns on for another 5-10 seconds while another file (I guess) is being
written to the hard drive. There is no notification on my screen as to
what is happening. Additionally, the machine is frozen while this
file(?) is being written. If I manage to move the digitizer puck during
this file write, then it seems to take even longer to finish. This bug
affects my productivity and mental stability.
This same bug(s) also occur on another p90 using c4.
Is there any chance at all that the .sv$ is not carrying the correct
file permissions in respect to the novell system much the same as the
current "read only" bug with novell (see p94. of the May CADence
