Of course my code might contain mistakes, but I did follow the data sheet very carefully. For debugging I would start looking for stuck interrupts. The old code did automatically release interrupts. That was wrong for most types of interrupts. Maybe some interrupt is not released correctly on the Atari side of the DSP interface. That might have been masked by the old (wrong) behavior.
