Reset-button (again...)

I've finally managed to install a reset-button in my Falcon, but it
wasn't without problems.

The usual way (where you solder it to a diode and condensator) didn't
work at all, the Falcon "died" and had to be switched off and on again
after a reset.

So I tried to remove the reset-button and connect the new one to two
of the solder-pads:

              V o 3 <-
         __ | o 2 <-
       --__-- o 1

Now the Falcon wouldn't boot at all...

The reset-button has two states: By default 1 and 2 is connected, when
you press it 3 and 2 is connected and 1 and 2 is disconnected.

Now I reinstalled the reset-button and connected the new one to 3 and
2 (at the underside of PCB). It now works, sort of... It works if I
run plain TOS, but if I run MiNT or MagiC I just get a black screen
and the Falcon hangs when I press the new button. The original button
works fine...
