I had the same problem, but isolated it to my using 'copy on the console port to retrieve the result. 'read-io worked better, but 'copy started working again when I added the /no-wait switch to 'open. I don't think this refinement was there before, perhaps the behaviour of 'open has changed recently? I seem to remember that using 'read-io is discouraged by RT, so that way is probably better.

I don't think the colsope port's behaviour has changed, my old scripts work again using /no-wait on 'open, anyway. -- Johan Forsberg
