This I believe is the last remaining problem. What's the status folks ?


- When running xaloader.prg from mint.cnf, it works.

- When using GEM=ROM and double-clicking xaloader.prg from the desktop, it crashes because appl_init() is called from supervisor mode in xaaes.km. On some old setups (like the official FreeMiNT setup for the FireBee), it worked by chance.

I remember having seen that trouble on both EmuTOS and Atari TOS a few time ago, then I stopped investigation after finding that appl_init() was the cause.
