Done some testing:
As reported, the game was too fast, nearly unplayable, after 0.112
But after version 0.141u4, the game speed was improved running same speed or very similar to pre-0.112.
This could be considered fixed

I'm going to label it possible until we get some actual PCB recordings to compare. There doesn't seem to be any available.

Yeah, I've been looking for some pcb video but there's nothing out there :(
Anyway, the resolution of this issue wouldn't mean having achivied pcb perfection. The game is still in imperfect emulation status, but it works better than when this was reported
