David, do you have a reproducible test-case for this?

I'm in favor of this approach.

Unless one is developing/debugging one's own program, I think main cause
for these kind of situations is wrong HW configuration, so going into
options GUI is best as it allows fixing the HW config besides
reseting & quitting the emulation.

I.e. in addition to halt, the dialog should probably be changed into:
	<Error>  =>  CPU halted!

	Likely reason for the error is wrong HW configuration.
	Invoke Options GUI (or cancel to continue debugging)?

		[ OK ]  [ Cancel ]

This will need some extra variable that tells emulation to invoke
Options once emulation gets back to main loop.
