The cursor goes to home position and a lot of random characters, many
inversed D and CBM-A scroll around on the screen. It keeps going on
until I power off the drive, at which I get back to the READY prompt.

At least I used to have, but maybe I gave away/sold it. However
I'm sure a disk image would be fine, as I can write those on a 1541.

I do have a working 2031 that I could load the program from, or
perhaps even better use my C2N232I to load individual files directly
to the PET.

Best regards
