I thought I'd tried this, but obviously I hadn't.  Anyway, to get back to
Vincent's point, it's not obvious to a naïve user that in order to run a
cartridge he needs to disable GEMDOS HD emulation.  I knew that, it just took a
while to figure out how to do the disabling.  But IMO it's not obvious that
GEMDOS HD emulation implies the use of the cartridge port.  Perhaps there ought
to be a one-line explanation on the GUI panel that GEMDOS HD emulation and
cartridge port usage are mutually exclusive.
