OK, please forgive my ignorance, but I don't know what these are...

OK, I'll take a shot at this... I re-built /usr/mdec/boot with both the 1.2 
and 1.3 revisions of getextmemx.c, with no difference in behavior, so what 
I think I hear you saying is that maybe it is the boot_xxffsv1 code I 
should look at, since it "appears" first... is this correct?  What would be 
another candidate to look at?

Thanks for your patience.
