  That's a kind way to describe it.  I made a tape last night using
"maketape" and it didn't boot.

  I have a KA650 boardset.  It's been misbehaving, but I haven't thorougly
explored why.  Given the troubles with the TK50Z, though, I'll likely invest
some time into troubleshooting it.

  That's truly weird.

  Anyway, thanks.  :)
