Yet Another Demo Thread

I'm starting this thread in order to list demos I've trouble getting to run properly, peradventure something can be done about them.

Howbeit, because the idea isn't to burden Toni with lazy reports, every demo referenced in here will have undergone a thorough, optimal conditions test, which's explained as follows:

1. All demos will be Break's, latest snapshot, unless otherwise stated.
2. All demos will be tested with default, unmodified settings (as in a first run) + "Best compatibility".
3. All demos will be tested with each of the six A500 Quickstart configurations.
4. All demos will be tested with both the current official WinUAE release as well as with the latest beta.
5. Even though only those demos failing the 12 tests will be reported, logs will be provided for the run of the most common A500 configuration alone.
6. The reports will contain "winuaebootlog.txt" and "winuae.txt" with "Log illegal memory accesses" on (this is kind of overkill for a log, so let me know if I should enable it at all).
7. These text files will be compressed with 7zip and the very archive will be named exactly after the demo file itself.
8. Screenshots may be attached as required.
9. Savestates will be provided if the problem occurs without sufficient immediacy, that time may not be wasted waiting for it to happen (I could easily attach a savestate for every report, but I don't know it that would be wise given the limited amount of space secured for attachments), thus I leave this up to Toni to request it or not.
10. Other tests may be suggested, but I had to keep it within reasonable limits because of time constraints.

As a starter, here's a couple that failed the test:

JoyDivision-DemoDisk01.adf: The second demo won't load at all, outputting the following error: "Unknown command Crusaders".

Ksylitol-Kolmiteho.exe: See the screenshot.

Best regards.
