Are you sure that you don't have a program loaded in that memory?  You
might have told QEMM to dump a TSR up there.  Use "exclude=b000-b100"
to avoid that.

I can use it with tdebug by giving "/do" (display - other) on the
command line.  To switch monitors, you have to set a memory location
(the equipment byte) and then do a int10 mode switch.
