So the real problem here appears to be that the OS 9 bootscript is

the loop causing it to drop out early.
You should use a separate (software) stack for rstack things in interpret
mode (this is what other OF implementations do).
I think the real solution here is to evaluate the Forth string in
compile mode to an anonymous word in the dictionary and then execute it
directly, but I'd welcome any other ideas.
That isn't going to work, not without a lot more hackery (the script
creates many definitions by itself).
