Robotron `Enforcer bug'

Robotron `Enforcer bug'

For those of you who don't know what the Robotron `Enforcer bug' is:

The enforcer bug is when an enforcer is in the lower right corner and you shoot it diagonal there is a 1 in 3000 chance the game will reset. The reason for the game resetting is there is a bug in the diagonal explosion code for enforcers. The memory below the screen hold the stack and an unclipped pixel can get 'drawn' into the stack cause the game to lock and the watchdog to kick in and reset the system.
