I was trying to work with Roman on testing new versions, but the time lag
was getting to be too much of a hassle for me. I also have been trying to
gain access to an m68k to see if I can figure out what's going on, but no

I'm not averted to this. I'll think about it this week and double-check

though, nothing changed that should've affected that arch.
