8085 RESET

Hi folks,

8085-based phone system weirdness continues and I'm beginning to wonder if
the PSU rails are all coming up in time for RESET to go high - given there's
4116 DRAMs in there isn't there supposed to be a proper power up order?

While I look at using a 20-pin ATX PSU to run this machine temporarily I
need a safe way to reset the CPU rather than constantly power cycling. The
RESET line comes from an ICL7611 op-amp via an MC14081B through pins 1-4 of
a 74LS04 and I need to pull it low for longer than 3 clock cycles.

I wish I had a schematic to show!
