Yep. I was going to suggest that, but I didn't know how the 1581
detects the disk.

Actually, I now that I think about it, I have the same kind of problems
with my A3000 drive: it suddenly thinks the disk is ejected, and
immediately sees it again, and tries to decide whether it is
an AmigaDOS, MS-DOS or 1581 disk (my own 1581-handler).
