I need to be more precise. 'Apparently fine' meant that the Kill All 
worked and everything else I had tried worked. The one thing I had not 
tried was an actual sort. The Kill All bug has clouded the issue.

To sort a text file CallASWI is required on both OS4.02 and OS4.39. 
There is no error without CallASWI, it just does not sort.

Is that not just a simple 26/32bit split. Everything up to and 
including OS4.39 is 26bit without SO_HeapSort32. I think ROL's first 
32bit release for the A9home was OS4.41, the current OS4.42 certainly 
has OS_HeapSort32, RO6 presumably continues this.

Just to be awkward both OS4.49 & OS4.44 return :-
  StrongED$OSVsn(Number) : 400
