Bug Description

i am trying to run a program on DOS running DOSEMU on UBUNTU and everything works fine the first instance. When i try to open the same program in another DOSEMU window, i get errors as if some of the files of the program are not accessible or can not be found. this same program runs multiple times with no problems on a real DOS on windows enviroment.

 It seems that DOSEMU enviroment is bloççcking or doing something weird with the file set so the second time i execute my app in the second DOSEMU window i get this error:

cannot find grales.LBR
cannot find gestion.LBR
Load failure (179) on file: \bit\gestion\menu
press any key to continue ... (if i press any key here it exits to the command prompt)

if i exit my application on the first window but i remain inside dosemu
and in the second dosemu window i try to execute the app, ewverything
runs fine now, so its obvious that some files are being blocked or
something like that, but i dont think is my app doing it because in
windows it does not happend when i run multiple times the same app.

i can open multiple DOSEMU PROMPTS but i can run the app in only one of them

DOSEMU ius being used

It is difficult to fix such problems without either (1) reproduction steps or (2) much more detailed information about what's going on at the DOS level...
