Can't speak about the KU, but I have two 250407 that will not play 'Edge 
of Disgrace' with a SuperPLA. It will always hang at a certain part of 
the demo. Use an original PLA and they work fine.

On the other hand, the same SuperPLA works flawlessly in a 250466...

On thing about the KU are the rather narrow traces. They didn't use 
planes or wide traces for the +5V and GND.

If you feel adventurous, use your Oscilloscope to visualize what happens 
on a C64 board with GND. Hook up the GND part of the probe to GND at the 
power supply intput and the other part to GND at the keyboard connector. 
On a KU you will see peaks of up to 1V (peak to peak).
