4.0 QEMM/386 memory manager

The "stealth" and "vidram" options of QEMM/386 may cause problems
when PP is loaded in high memory. If you encounter problems in
this QEMM configuration, try disabling some QEMM options to try
to isolate the problem. If the problem still exists, try loading
PP in low memory.
