Summary 07677: cmi2x: Alphanumeric keyboard doesn't work - regression from 2017 build
Description As reported at :

The OS9 disk boots into the LightWriter WP app, which needs a mouse. However, when shelling out to DOS the keyboard is not selected, so:

    There's no way to do anything, and
    There's no way to close the emulation either.

Requires machine reboot. A YouTube video from 2017 shows it working correctly, see


Further testing shows that when a diagnostic disk is used the keyboard doesn't work there either.
Steps To Reproduce Simply run the emulation with any Fairlight OS9 disk image.

Issue can be closed. I created the ROM file from "official" Fairlight sources and evidently one of the files was bad. Downloading from another source fixed this issue.
