This is a special case in Korean MS-DOS/PC DOS 4.01+.
It is still present in MS-DOS 7.10 (Windows 98SE, I´m
not sure about 8.0 aka ME), but it vanished in PC DOS 7/2000.

If the current country code is 82 *and* no /P:filename
was specified *and* no default AUTOEXEC.BAT file was
found, COMMAND.COM will instead execute a file named
KAUTOEXE.BAT, if it exists. Presumably, this is used
to ensure that the DBCS frontend drivers are loaded
without properly set up CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT files.
