Shared folder issue with Kickstart 1.3

Hi,

Bit of a noob question, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I'm using WinUAE 2.3.3. The problem seems to be that under Kickstart 1.3, a shared folder is always bootable, even if you set it to be non-bootable.

I set up WinUAE so the emulated Amiga has Kickstart 1.3, and uses an image file of my actual Amiga hard disk (uaehf.device). [The HD boot partition startup-sequence loads Kickstart 3.1 using ReKick, then reboots and loads Workbench 3.1. Booting that way works fine.]

I then added a shared folder in WinUAE. The problem is that, even though it's marked as non-bootable (BootPri shows as -128 in the Hard drives panel), when using Kickstart 1.3 the emulated Amiga boots from the shared folder instead of the HD boot partition. Under Kickstart 3.1 the emulated Amiga boots from the hard disk as it should, not from the shared folder.
