with WinMon (bootloader) I get this (this is perhaps more readable...):

I hope this will help and many thanks for your help!


I traced through some of put character function this morning... I didn't finish, but I thought it looked like some data structure wasn't initialized. Perhaps you can figure out exactly what line the bad load belongs to in the C source, and see what structure that is. -- If there is a data structure -- I could just be crazy. ;)
