I know that; in non-Dump modes the start address would be assumed to be
0.  But it goes the other way as well - using Dump mode to examine a
block of memory I *Saved, sometimes it would be nice to jump to a known
offset without first having to manually add it to the start address.
Sometimes even Absolute files trip me up in this way.

Ooh, I didn't know that.  Useful - thanks.
