"Dancing April Fool's GFXLIB" creates single-move copper list that should clear copper dma bit in DMACON. If bit does not clear after short CPU delay, "Copper not draining" is written to serial port, GFXLIB init is aborted, screen stays black (instead of showing green on black garbage..)
Probably not the only chip bug in prototype chips.
Paula DPLL data separator also not works (external FDC9216B used to perform data separation and clock recovery).
