Not quite, but we're close. According to the debugger here, we're 
actually hitting load-file within the boot process on Milax :)  However, 
we need to finish reworking all of the client interface Forth words to 
take into account the new reverse ordering. I've made a start on this, 
but it will take me a bit of time because its in Forth - I'll post a 
patch as I complete it, although any offers of help are gratefully accepted.
