the dictionary entry definitely needs an update, all it describes is 
the 1.0 style, no mention of "/volumes" or the new os x style of 
referring to the boot drive.

thanks for including the updated info from the rest of the docs, i can 
see it won't be difficult to update my stacks, though it will be time 
consuming finding all my references (and it's a bummer that i need to 
special case os x ... but such is life)

as always, quick and wonderful help, thank you very much Jeanne!
