     Comments     : In Boot-aids there is a routine:
                    cmpi.b #8,3(a0)
                    bne.s $FEEF6
                    This causes that only one datablock will be destroyed.
                    This routine has been disabled by Starcom 5 as the bne.s
                    has been replaced by a NOP.
