Yep, this works fine indeed on z26.. I'm just a bit sad the CC doesn't
like it. It's logical since the binary I load on it is not the first
thing being executed by the 2600 since powerup, that's why I was
looking for a different solution, but I'll probably use this one in
the end since my theory is not turning out to be good...!

Thanks again and regards!
