Err, no. :-)
But seriously, I'm a bit boggled that a diagnostic program would _not_ have
as default the 'standard' vector/address. So I'm kind of assuming that the
0's are somehow bug results.

Yes, if the backplane is some flavour of DD11-P (I don't know of any
backplane that supports the 11/34 but not the 11/34A, but I only have direct
confirmatory documentation on the DD11-P, and it supports both).
My vague recollection is that one can use _either_ the M7265/M7266 (but as
paired set) _or_ the M8265/M8266 set, but you can't mix and match them. But
don't depend on that (I'm too tired to dig into this tonight, I'll do so

Yeah, that's the 11/34 backplane (actually, the DD11-P part - the -PK is the
version with the wire harness to work in a BA11-L or BA11-K; the -PF is for
the BA11-F or BA11-P).
