Hi gang,

Some time ago I recieved a bug report from a user with a ZIP drive. He
said Calmira would hang if he opened explorer with no disk in the drive.
So I fixed it, so I thought... It created a more serious bug.

Trying to open a drive from My Computer no longer works.

So I will be undoing that bugfix. As I found out, the ZIP drive user had
the "pretend to be non-removable" option on, causing Calmira to hang.

Later today I will upload the update.

For those with source code; restore HDirectoryExists to it's ogiginal

function HDirectoryExists(const Filename: TFilename): Boolean;
  rec: TSearchRec;
  Result := ((Length(Filename) = 3) and CouldBeFolder(Filename))
    or (FindFirst(Filename, faDirectory or faHidden or faSysFile
    or faReadOnly, rec) = 0) and (rec.Attr and faDirectory <> 0);
  FindClose(rec); { 3.11 }
