A lot of things slotted into place after reading Greg's explanation, and it makes perfect sense. It ALSO explains a long standing mystery to me why, when writing .SEQ files, the (1541) drive would bounce of track 18 before stepping to the next track - something it doesn't do when saving a .PRG program file. (saving a Program file is an atomic act, whereas a sequential file may be open and processed for an extended period before being closed.) (from memory this ALSO happens if a Secondary address other than 0 is specified, but I'd have to check that) Cool stuff.
