I can think of at least one reason for wanting to automatically load an
abjrec.ajz file from disk. I make use of Benjamin's Bookmark feature
from his site. At present bookmarking is not in the daily builds. I
can't flash this version because it won't initialise the JB correctly,
so it has to be on disk.

Brilliant work by the way!!
