Sounds like you've saved me a job for tomorrow :-)
Now I guess the $1,000,000 question is what on earth is happening different
with *CONFIGURE in MOS 3.5 that breaks two different emulators!

My suspicion is that the Master PSU is a bit more powerful than the BBC B
one - it looks more substantial at least. Given that the Master potentially
to support the Master 512 Co-Pro internally, they probably upped the PSU
spec for that.
I would have thought that for a standard, unexpanded Master 128 then the BBC
PSU should be fine (provided the X2 caps don't start smoking, as they did on
my BBC B PSUs within a week of each other).
