Hi everybody,

just subscribed to this list.

Before anyone get's desparate: better make sure you haven't been fooled by the Falcon's 030 data cache here (at least I didn't see any code to invalidate the cache).
The blitter is a DMA device, so without a cache invalidate, you probably won't see the new values the blitter just copied (or only more or less randomly).
