Would it be any difference if you run the machine at full speed or lower
speed or even single step past this instruction? With the KM11 installed
you could even single step the 5 minor states in each micro instruction.
Would it be possible to insert a breakpoint or halt and run the program,
insert original instruction and single step?
The TIG module has a separate non crystal controlled oscillator which one
could tune for marginal checking.
Would it be possible to isolate the test case outside the UNIX environment?
