At least I don't think WHDLoad adds much more frame overhead than the keyboard interrupt.
Yes, I pulled the ACA500 out and booted from disk and my A500 with 512kb trapdoor expansion runs about the same loading wise, but did get the feeling it ran better when those rocks appeared though so double checked and 1mb A500 runs better, no noticeable slowdown when destroying rocks, also when using the beam weapon on those beetle things that drop diamonds hardly slows down when they are on the screen as well where the ACA500+ACA1232 has slowdown on both!
