I can add another game here (which I tested recently while working on the
RS232 code): Oxyd 2 ... the game now works fine when starting the
two-player mode via an RS232 connection, but when using MIDI, it aborts
after a couple of seconds (at least I never made it any further than level
two when using MIDI).

Something is definitely still causing major trouble here...
