I feel guilty:


My assumption is, that I wanted to unify the wait states used in
different setups (crt.S, bootloader). Obviously I did this in a very
casual way, without too much testing or verifying the timings in the
datasheet. I'm most sorry that you and probably others wasted their time
to locate the troublemaker.

Many thanks for reporting this.
