Thanks for your reply.

I saw that in the release notes, but it definitely does not agree
with LSI Logic 4010 documentation. Thus, in my view it is wrong. Is
he still there?

I was given incorrect information here. I was told that the
MIPS16 assembly language referred to the registers by their logical
names ($0 through $7) instead of their underlying, translated
register names ($16, $17, $2:$7). Obviously, this is not the case,
and it is noted as such in a footnote to a table in the LSI Logic
documentation that I had missed. This is working fine now.
