Well, this appears to be the same basic problem that we had when the
166 MHz processors showed up.  When Borland created their delay routine
for the Pascal compiler I am using, they didn't make it "166 MHz
compliant".  What happened is that a number they computed as a divisor
got too big if the processor was running too fast - and created an
overflow situation.  

I will investigate this as I am sure that the Borland Pascal underground
has probably already seen this and someone has created a new patch to
fix the problem.  I will try to have this figured out for the next 

Does TR run on the Pentium II computer?  I would expect the same thing to
