You can also invoke debugger and remove the breakpoint.

The problem isn't the breakpoint, but the "text" Hatari variable.
Value of that (and few other variables) comes from the current
basepage, but basepage can be located only after TOS has set up
system header values.

Warning comes from system base not being set, not from breakpoint.

Breakpoints have no mechanism to react to variables suddenly
becoming undefined, but I changed the basepage handling code
so that manually invoked stuff still outputs relevant warnings,
but individual basepage values won't.

Note that pc=text will trigger several times during boot
before the autostarted program is run.  You know which one
is the correct one from debugger loading your program
symbols, or you can enabled GEMDOS tracing.
