That null in A0 is not bug, if you look at the function you see that it is 
explicitly set to 0 at $00e014e2. Don't ask me why, but they sometimes access 
the blitter like that. You will also see that the bus-error handler was set to 
an address inside the function to catch it. That function is called from 
Blitmode(), to detect wether a blitter is present. Blitmode just starts before 
this function, at $00e014b4. Obviously the desktop tries to activate the 
blitter there, according from the setting from desktop.inf.
