The Atari target already is quite bloated, therefore I'm reluctant to put 
more magic into the part of the runtime lib which gets linked in by

Can't you initialize the E: device manually as first action of main()?

I've attached a function to do this - it opens E: if it isn't already 
initialized. Can you please check whether it works with the cartridge? 
Simply add a call to _txtinit() at the start of your program and link 
with the attached file.

If it works I could add this function to the Atari runtime lib.
