The patches I posted are mostly for both. The kdj11e.cmd patch is for a problem seen on SIMH that probably can't happen on real hardware. The nsp1.pat file Tony mentioned is certainly more likely on SIMH but I suspect could happen on real hardware also. In any case, none of them will create problems on real hardware.
