You punch in the address, then G...for instance, if you wanted to warm-start
the system, you'd enter 3D0G.

Hmm...this is the Monitor you're talking about, right?  I found this:

The enhanced IIe, at least, doesn't seem to handle the S (step) and T
(trace) commands.  (It doesn't behave as the aforementioned webpage
describes, anyway.)  If you're using G (go) to continue after a break, the
Monitor JSRs to the address you give it.  That's going to push an address
onto the stack, but that address won't get pulled off if a BRK terminates
execution.  Pressing the spacebar by itself should do nothing, as the
Monitor gathers up a line of text and deals with the whole thing after you
press Return.
