Jeez you know your stuff! I knew there was "something" about certain A1200 boards and timing issues but couldn't remember exactly what! Will steer clear of 040 and 060 accelerators as I don't need that much power anyway.

Always wondered - do accelerator boards need drivers to get them going or does the machine recognise that there is a CPU/FPU upgrade present?
