Hi again,

Works fine and I could find a nasty bug in some game I was debugging thanks to it.

Now, I'm investigating a problem with Black Tiger WHDLoad slave. For some reason, A6 becomes corrupt and takes value $4A790000. I tried H and I was very surprised not to find why

at 57FDD6CA we see that A6 is properly set. Yet, at 57FDD6CE A6 is corrupt
(also happened on a real Amiga BTW)

Do you have any explanation?
I have a workaround that works: if A6 is $4Asomething, I just reset it to the proper static value and retry: fixed the problem but that's dirty.
