Does that require EMS? Or are you just trying to save RAM by using UMBs?

Not sure, but "usually" it seems to be safer to use "X=TEST I=TEST" in there.

The README.TXT says that the ultra-safest setting (but probably fairly
useless for real-world use) is "X=A000-FFFF NOHI NOVME NOINVLPG". It
goes on to say, "This is the safest combination. If this doesn't work,
Jemm most likely isn't compatible with the current DOS/BIOS."

So I would try testing some more.
