Reality check...

I'm still almost completely baffled about the Amazing Vanishing BATCON, despite having skimmed about a foot-thick's worth of scanned PDFs.

Fortunately I have an account on a real physical 7.04 system that's run by people who know how to operate one (unlike me, who is the TOPS-10 equivalent of a neophyte UNIX admin [mentioning no names] with a BSD manual in one hand and a root prompt in the other). Therefore I've snaffled copies of what I think have to be the relevant config and control files from there and a copy of the GALGEN manual from the Document Archive.

I'll rebuild the system and see if the new information does the trick; if it doesn't, at least I'll be able to post to alt.sys.pdp10 about what I've done so that I don't appear to be a complete Clueless N00b to the wise and wonderful.
