There may well be something wrong with your startup script, which is why
I asked you to post it.
When you start from a term_80, you already have the windowing system
active. That means you can merge stdfonts etc. without crashing the
system. The windowing system is not active when you start from term_32
but rather the vdg system. You could crash the system if for example,
you tried to merge stdfonts before initializing a window.
