Interesting! What's odd is that the DR11-B uses the Bus Interface card (M7219)
from the RC11 controller, and that _can_ cross moby boundaries, so clearly it
has the right overflow output; someone just decided not to implement it - the
DR11-B sets ERROR instead on an address overflow. Wierd.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see if RSTS operates correctly once this
problem is fixed...
