This fix was for fake complete track zero ads, DMS "official" supported way for ads has always been supported.

"Fake" ad files contain two complete track zero, first comes fake track zero (BBS ad) and then another track zero (real track data). This was not handled correctly. (I think DMS unpackers only handled this "correctly" by accident..)

As I wrote in my ancient thread, xDMS did NOT handle this correctly in every case but sometimes produced a 912,384-byte file, which then was renamed as [o] (overdump, which it is definitely not)
Doesn't apply to native AmigaOS unpackers, of course.

I assumed that, that's why I added the clarification in my last sentence you also quoted.
