It can in *naDev ghoS*/Come here (clipped)!/ (PK) This certainly doesn't 
mean /while you're here in the place, come somewhere!/

Interestingly, /paq'batlh/ has a line: *batlh naDev SuDab*/Welcome to 
this place./ It isn't *batlh naDev boDab.* Maybe this means that *Dab* 
is not allowed to have a locative as its object, and *naDev* can't stop 
being a locative. Or maybe the sentence means /here, you will inhabit 
someplace honorably/, and it's not saying anything about possible 
objects of *Dab.*
