Well, RTFM caused this screwup.  The '~' was supposed to be expanded to the
path in the passwd file.  It doesn't get expanded so here's what you need
to get the stuff.

uucp adaptex!/usr/spool/uucppublic/scsiutil/list /usr/spool/uucppublic/list

To obtain any of the files, replace the word 'list' in the above uucp command
with the name of the file.  I found two local systems that help me test this
out and it works.  No more beleiving what I read anymore and no more guess
work.  Do not use wildcards.
