Keep in mind the FORTH ROM Module actually contained 2 ROMs; one is fixed address at 0xE0000 and the other is loadable anywhere, placed at the 'right' address by the OS' config routines.

Perhaps the board with the very different layout is a board that holds the 32KB ROM that is fixed at 0xE0000 ? Makes sense that it would have fewer leads, I think...
