Re: memory disappears and never returns

Does it help if you leave the power out for like 30 seconds before
starting it again?
We have noticed that part of the DRAM content is intact
quite long after power is removed.
There shouldn't be any dependencies like that in the code (anymore..),
but perhaps you've found something we've missed.
