That likely just means that the program executed garbage in the memory and
then crashed.

You'd need to step through the execution to see where it is exactly going
wrong (e.g. by comparing the run to a working one from HD image), but I'd
assume that it fails already earlier and that the "GEMDOS" opcode was really
just junk in memory that got executed by accident.
