Thanks guys!

Cracked it. The main problem was that somewhere down the line XBOOT stopped
switching to my Nova version of TKROMDRV and thus I was using
Non-serialized with the Nova.

Re: crashes on launching applications: I used to have to keep Copyback off
until they were launched under TOS for this reason.
Then I thought I discovered that on AB040/MiNT I no longer had this problem
and I started using Copyback on all the time.
Was I wrong? Anyway, it is a likely cause of the crashes on launch. On very
limited experience so far it doesn't happen if I launch via the unified
drive U.

That just leaves little jumps of the mouse. Well I am not going to worry
about these. Maybe they are there all the time... or maybe that was the
non-serialized too.

That was it!

No. I use write through, not copyback for the superstack.

No. V6.13 in use.

No. Should I? (I think not)
