Yes, I have noticed this, while the MacCon-i NuBus card works
exceedingly well in my IIci, when placed in my 660AV it causes
lockups. I believe that this is due to a difference in how the
NuBus interrupts are routed/handled on the AV machines, thought
I haven't as yet had an opportunity to investigate further. I
thought that this might be an easy wasy to get a fast machine
to compile kernels on while keeping my files savf on a stable
NFS server (my IIci) but alas it didn't work.
