I discovered a strange bug in list version 7.7a:

if I try to display a file, only containing CR's (hex 0d)
my system will crash on exit if the file has 8319 or more bytes

with the message

Memory allocation error
Cannot load COMMAND, system halted

this number of 8319 is independent of my system configuration,
I tried it with clean floppy boot and on two differently configured

I discovered this when I tried looking at some FILExxxx.CHK of
lost clusters.
