Thanks Dennis!

Unfortunately the timing isn't the problem, as all the HMPx writes are more
than 24 cycles after the HMOVE's.

I do have a bunch of "<-- weird" messages though... all associated with
HMOVE.    They appear both when the machine is being "zeroed" out (I suspect
these are normal) and also on the kernel that displays the score...  I
checked the score display kernel and the HMPx writes are >24 cycles from the
HMOVE there as well.  I also tried commenting out the score display, and
found the same results with the sprite movement.

I am not overly concerned about this at the moment as I would really rather
get the display up and running first and worry about the player positioning
after.. ...that is, unless it *has* to be done in the display kernel...
