Still a problem or does my code have yet something odd..?
See the attachment.

And probably related issue; I don't understand how this has worked for so
many years:
tmp = ""
Seek #hWatchFile, 9  <-- Seek to the last byte.
Read #hWatchFile, tmp <--- tmp is string.

And magically the tmp variable contained "test". How!???

Now it is:
tmp = ""
Seek #hWatchFile, 5  <-- Seek to the string.
Read #hWatchFile, tmp <--- tmp now contains "test" as it should.

Any idea why this worked? My brain is a bit rusty. I haven't touched
computers for a while.
