IIRC I once tested that version on my Falcon, and it worked, indeed - but in
very mysterious ways: If I just ran the program, there was no bus error
here. But if I loaded it into a debugger first (IIRC I used Bugaboo), and
set a breakpoint in front of the instruction, I got a bus error indeed
instead when trying to execute the instruction.

See also the old mail thread:


It's just completely unclear when this address is causing a bus error and
when it's ignored.
