SedOric-3 and INIT command

This is my recent Oric-toy configuration:
It includes:
- Oric Atmos
- Original Microdisc controller
- Drive A: Gotek floppy emulator with OLED and buzzer mods (I will post more info in separated thread about it).
- Drive B: 3-inch double-sided drive, max 42 tracks.

Everything works perfect, but I found something strange with INIT command.
I boot from drive A and want to format the disk in drive B, so I type the command: INITB,17,42,D
The formatting starts fine, but the drive B is NOT always re-calibrated i.e. the magnetic head is NOT on track 00 and as result the command fails. :(

So, my questions are:
Is this behavior of INIT command already known or it's bug?
Is there a standard way to force drive re-calibration?
Or maybe I do something wrong?

Below is my temporary solution - redrive - small program, Atmos only,
which makes drive re-calibration using FDC1793 command restore.
The attached archive contains DSK, TAP and source! ;).

Any comments are highly appreciated !

No idea, I guess it's something André Cheramy of the CEO would know about.

Very nice configuration! Does the bug also happen with older versions of Sedoric?

Uh, i'm not an expert but traduce your interrogation in the mag.
May be André or somebody else will be able to solve it
