This is the most plausible explanation I've seen yet.  When you create
a DFU program which is to be saved (using STRDFU not UPDDTA), one of
the options is "Suppress errors" Y or N.  The default seems to be the
last value specified by the user for the last DFU program
created/changed.

So perhaps UPDTA picks up the same default based on the user profile,
and the last saved DFU program had specified suppress errors = Y.

Jim--

Try STRDFU, then create a DFU for any file you want.  See if the
default shows up as Y or N for suppress errors.  I'm guessing Y.
Change it to N and create a DFU program.  Delete the DFU program.

Rerun your UPDDTA, and see if you now get the same errors as everybody
else.

Doug
