yup its that one - and the test in the lorenz suite uses a hardcoded "magic 
value" for it, so the test will fail randomly... (i updated the c64 version of 
the testsuite a while ago to first check the "magic value", which makes it 
fail less often... it still may do it occasionally)

tl;dr: the ANE and LAXIMM tests may fail, dont bother :)


Of course, what I really want is total world domination.
