We lost the ability to run some 9x only apps? Will we ever get back the
ability to emulate these instructions, I also have an app crashing
because of this (not tried emulating NT yet). I guess if this will
always be the case we should either emulate NT by default, or print some
slightly more helpful message than a debug printout.
