I didn't.

Enabling MMU doesn't help, but enabling 32-bit addressing makes TOS v3
work also with 4MB of RAM.  I.e. it was actually 32-bit addressing,
not TT-RAM, that helped.

Why things work without 32-bit addressing when there's >4MB of ST-RAM?

PS. I added a commit that disables 32-bit addressing with TOS v2 as
that doesn't seem to be compatible with it.
