I'm getting similar results with DPMI on AMD64. According to dosemu.conf
DMPI on AMD64 is experimental, so I guess this is to be expected. I have
the same problem when CPUEMU is set to full though, so I guess the CPU
emulation is also still experimental.

Please note that I am using the 32-bit binary on both the x86_32 and 64 kernel -- I've no knowledge about how dosemu works, but does it follow a diferent code path on amd64 even if compiled for i386? (apart from x86_64's missing vm86plus syscall). Because of this, I initially believed I had misconfigured my kernel build, but since I am also having problems with the default 64-bit Debian kernel I guess not.

I suspect the experimental limitation doesn't come from the 32 or 64 bit binary, but from the 64-bits kernel. I understand certain 16-bit mode things aren't possible when the system runs in 64-bit mode, so that's why the emulation is necessary for certain parts then. This emulation feature is still experimental.
