Summary 06588: Regression loading softlist items from the command line with changed slot options
Description Many of the pc models default to a 5.25" floppy drive, but you can specify a 3.5" one with a slot option on the command line. The softlists contain both 5.25" and 3.5" disks - pcdos5 is an example of a 3.5" set.

In 0.183, you could do this and it would boot: (it takes a little while on fast-forward)

mame pc -isa3:fdc_xt:fdc:0 35dd pcdos5

In 0.184, 0.185, and in current git master, the above command doesn't cause an error but if you go to the file manager there's no disk attached. To get it to work you have to add -flop1:

mame pc -isa3:fdc_xt:fdc:0 35dd -flop1 pcdos5
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Information Likely a regression from the softlist cleanup in the 0.184 cycle:

I can confirm the situation. In my case I don't even have pcdos5 and there's no error.

However once -flop1 was added, then it said File not found.

This is fixed in which has yet to be applied pending some sanity checking for breakage/regression
