Yep, that counts.  Just found a couple references to it on Google.  It's the Reset switch.

I'm able to test the switches during startup on my Supercharger, but so far I haven't been able to successfully test them in an emulator.  Are emulator users out-of-luck when it comes to this type of feature/easter egg?

I guess for my game, I could code a slight pause into the startup for emulator users...  or maybe add a "loading" screen just to confuse people.
