Did a little research on this..
Both cartridges in the softlist (pitfall2 and piftall2a) didn't work until 0.209 - specifically traced to a change that defaulted the offset to 0 for any softlist entry fixed the 'piftall2a' cartridge ONLY. So, in essence, this isn't a regression and I am doubting the fitness of the parent set (pitfall2) as it doesn't work even after this offset changing.
