Yep, in order to reproduce the 6847/CoCo video bug, the GIME would have had
to fake it. And I'm willing to bet there are lots of CoCo 3 users who have
forgotten about the F1 option or never learned about it. I wonder how many
times they hit the RESET button before they realized that the blue wasn't
going to change to red? :)
