The main blocker to the release is the appl_init() problem. We need urgent

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.
