Copious notes.. I'll take a look at this after I get home.

"The dot" is part of the easter egg. It's the same effect you get when
you start the game with joystick button held down: a dot replaces one
of the moving targets. If you shoot it while it's still on the top row,
you'll see the easter egg (programmer's name). In Stella, this seems to
freeze the game, too. I need to try on a real console.
