Yes, some models of the PDP-11 do not handle DMA requests
when halted. I'm pretty sure the 11/45 does.
And, I'm pretty sure the 11/05 does NOT, as I recall not
being able to perform disk requests directly from the console,
but had to write a short program that went into an infinite
loop after commanding the controller card to perform a transfer.
