Note that the CBM seekdir() function is implemented in an extremely
simple manner: It closes the directory, reopens it, then it seeks until
it has consumed exactly that many bytes as it had consumed before.

This should be doable on the Atari, too. ;)
Just count the chars consumed when using readdir(), put the offset into
the DIR structure, and use that value for seekdir() to read over the
first x bytes.
