Hmm, since the last major modifications to the boot blocks were be me
(the support of int13 extensions, which accidently wasn't documented in
the version number; I just corrected that), it's likely that this is
my fault :-(.

While I did test something similar with booting from floppy and reading
the kernel from wd0a (which did work ok), I didn't do that for some scsi

Fortunately, I may be in the position to do this latter test in a few
days, so I may be able to investigate this further.
