Yes, maybe ... but does it really matter? It's just a string...
(actually I wonder whether the ID should be encoder there at all, since
you would not expect a change of the string just because it is
connected to a different port of the bus)

I've played with the settings there a little bit (you've mentioned 16
bytes, not 1 byte), but it did not help. So currently this is not
emulated yet, since I did not find the right setting yet. If you want
to have a try, have a look at the dma_check() function in ncr5380.c.
