What file are you trying to open? These functions can only operate within the 
rsbac.dat directory, and the filename used must be a basename without /. 
Additionally, you must be very careful with locking and memory segment issues.

Generally, if you want to store some attributes, I _strongly_ recommend to 
use the generic lists. The reg_sample3 shows how to use them, and there is 
the reg.htm document.

On some filesystems (e.g. MSDOS), the filename (=listname) also has other 
limits. I recommend to use max. 7 or 8.2 chars, because the automatic backup 
appends a 'b'.
