Ok, this is fixed in subversion and the fix will be in the next snapshot.

I've a somewhat strange problem however: It seems that the CIA1 TOD clock
needs a write to the 10th of seconds register to start running. This is
independent of my program: If I use the IO command to check the registers,
they're stuck until my program runs - and they won't change when my program is
done. Is this a problem with my VICE version (I have 1.19 wich is really old)?

I know that when writing the time, the clock gets stopped until the 10th of
seconds register is written, so not completing such a sequence will stop the
clock. But I cannot imagine that the C64 kernal does something like this?

Besides that: The current cc65 development version does ~65 dhrystones on the
C64 (2.12.0 is ~52). So if you've run any benchmarks before, please run them
again. And report any problems you find:-)
