OK, some more detail:

I've now tested on:

Work machine: AMD Athlon, Sarge
Home desktop: Intel PIII, Sid
Home laptop: Intel PIII, Sarge clean install

Both Sarge installs are OK.  The Sid one is not.  For all installs,
I've duplicated:

The user environment was ~identical over all machines bar trivial
stuff (ssh agent, hostname, machtype etc.).  locale does not appear to
be an issue.

The only thing that marks the Sid machine as different is that during
startup I'm prompted to press F5/F8 for both config.sys /and/
autoexec.bat (the latter after freecom has started).  On the other two
machines I'm only prompted for config.sys.  This is strange because
the conffiles are the same for all, and the dosemu/dosemu-freedos
packages are clean installs after a purge.

I'm not sure what makes this machine behave differently, but perhaps
the reason for it is the root cause?
