Most guys have Milan's now but that should not matter much.

That EmuTOS does not contain an undocumented vector that newer FreeMiNT
is using. I fixed it lately and the working EmuTOS was included in
latest ARAnyM release.

It is clear and well known problem. It's been discussed several months
ago. Let's see EmuTOS changelog:

2004-08-04
- bios/tosvars.S: kbdvec added in order to satisfy FreeMiNT 1.16.1 that
                  relies on an undocumented TOS >= 2.0 feature (joy)

So please use the EmuTOS from latest ARAnyM (or newer). The EmuTOS in
latest AFROS is simply too old.
