I made further tests with WinUAE, Amiga1000 settings and Kickstart 1.3.
Indeed, the checksum makes a difference on reset (either LCtrl+Win+Win or WinUAE reset function).

- On startup, the kickstart is loaded from the floppy. Valid or invalid checksum makes no difference.

- On reset, if the checksum of the loaded kickstart was valid, it is reused from WOM and not reloaded from the floppy. It behaves just like a kickstart in ROM.

- On reset, if the checksum of the loaded kickstart was not valid, it is loaded again from the floppy, just like on cold boot.

I reproduced the same behavior with an EmuTOS floppy, no more mystery

NB: I never saw a red screen, maybe that function was introduced in later kickstarts...
