Roger Burrows just has thrown light on that case:

DMA CHIP ANOMALY - It is possible to get a double strobe from the DMA chip it the
DMA Mode Control Register is not written to immediately after the DMA Data Port. For
this reason. while writing to the DMA Data Port it is necessary to write the DMA Mode
Control operation for the next operation. This can be done by writing a long word to the
Date Port with the data in the upper word and the next operation in the lower word.
See the move.l in the programming examples in chapter 4 for an example of how to do
this. This restriction only applies to the writing of the DMA Data Port and not to the
writing of the DMA Mode Control Register.
