That will save a little memory in the save state (at the cost of a little more complexity) but won't avoid the current problems that occur if the slave doesn't sit in the exact position that it did before.

I added a couple of nops to the slave to test what would happen with a future slave update and WHDLoad bombs out with an "unsupported version" error. Several registers suddenly had strange values and I guess the stuff on the stack would potentially be a real mess.

Loading the save game on a different config (less memory, different CPU etc) locked up the game completely too. I even tried re-running the patch of the AMIGA file so the addresses would be recalculated but it didn't help.
