Thanks, I'll certainly have a look at it and apply your patch if it works
as expected. I created the SysSetCtrlBreakHandler infrastructure when

original TP/BP behaviour under OS/2 and preferred to use a generic and
common approach rather than use different hacks for different units and
different platforms.
