[Coco] Bugs 2 FYI

The pdf file for Bugs-II indicates a 64k Coco is required. That means it was not designed for a 
Coco3 as that would be at least 128k.
A quick disassembly of BUGS-II.BIN shows that it runs mostly in all ROM mode and loads code over 
Super Extended Basic which would disrupt Coco3 code.
I tested the program on a 512k Coco3 and the program started but then froze up.

It is of interest that the program does seem to run via Coco3 emulation with MESS v.158 . That might 
provide a clue to how the code could be patched so that the program would run on a real Coco3.

By the way, on a real Coco3 it does not matter if there is an MPI in use or not.
