We have discovered a potentially severe problem in the current version of Qedit for MPE/iX 4.6.53. It only occurs in the rare case where the number of lines times the width of the lines = 32768. e.g. if your file was 128 bytes wide and had 256 records
The problem is that texting this file will end up dropping every second line, so keeping this file will end up losing half your file. Please note that this problem does not affect the MPE/V or HP-UX versions of Qedit.
We have developed the following patch to fix the problem. This fix is only for version 4.6.53. (You type the bolded text).
