Nicks problems are things that we know should not be problems so we
need to fix them.  The epia based boards are nice sweet little boards
and it would be great starter platforms for people so having a
procedure that "just works" would be really useful.

I'm considering buying one so I may get my wish. *grin*

For a start he needs to test with the most recent version of the
emulator to see if the problems persist.

Whats the status of the "in-code" emulator vs the standalone testbios?
 Have they been synced recently or merged into a single tree?
