I've got both CPUs, and have never seen any problems with any
combination of boards, but -- and I'm really, really reaching back
down into the murky depths of my mind now! -- I seem to recall that
there can, indeed, be problems getting a KA650 to work with other
boards that a KA630 has no problems with, if the KA650 is old, that
is, below a certain revision level.  It was something about the Qbus
access logic that was slightly wrong, I think.  Related to timing, if
my memory serves.  Does this ring a bell for anyone?
