Ah I see. Can I ask which options you are using to start 
qemu-system-sparc64? If I start with "-nographic" then the system 
starts, but when the boot process stops with an error, the console 
freezes and I cannot manually enter forth commands.

If I use "-vnc :1" on qemu-system-sparc then when the boot fails, I can 
manually type forth commands into the interpreter; however adding the 
"-vnc :1" option on qemu-system-sparc64 causes it to crash on startup 
for me so I cannot do the same here :(
