Unfortunately I can hardly remember how the PMMU works, and when I look
at some of my old programs using the PMMU I also don't know anymore how they
worked ;-).

Anyway, I don't think the PMMU protects the adresses below $1000. The
standard page size is 32K and as far as I remember the transparent
translation registers are not used by TOS 4.0. The memory above $1000 is
not protected, so it cannot be the PMMU.
And I cannot remember doing anything special in OUTSIDE when a smaller page
size was configured by the user. All in all I don't think there are special
rules for the low memory.

Take care
