Hi Glenn Saunders!

As far as I know, the trick works fine on Eckhard 
Stollbergs real hardware.

At the moment everything looks like a bug in Stella, so 
I've to talk to Brad about this.

But as Eckhard says, this is very unusual treating the 
TIA in ways it was not really invented for -> "weird 
HMOVE" as the Z26 log would say, so I'd be happy to have 
some more PAL/NTSC people confirming, that the kernel is 
stable on real hardware.

On my computer everything on Z26 isn't as smooth as I'd 
expect it to run on a real target either, so reports 
about this are welcome, too.

I guess I'm doing too much midkernel repositioning and 
Ball/Sprite shifting for my poor 266 Celeron ;-)

Oh, and while I'm at it, am I the only one who gets 
occasional "Phantom"-Joystick readings on Z26?
