True, *free leads to "File 'free' not found", moreover the HostFS
iconbar has no menu, which could otherwise lead to 'Free space'..

MPro seems to ignore the message, and carries on regardless. My query
arises from a thread, on the MPro mailing list, which is concerned with
identifying the possible causes of delays in debatching, experienced on
someone else's Iyonix. I had not previouly looked at MPro's log, and was
surprised to see the warning message.

I'm pleased to say that MPro running on RPCEmu 0.8.10 is stable, and
reliable.

I suspect that the fix may have been to ignore the warning message.
