I was recently digging in my backup archives and located a set of Heretic PWADs that I had created way back in 1995. But upon loading them up in Doomsday, the player start was somewhere way off the map area itself. The map itself played OK in the original Heretic. Also, it seems that in the normal Heretic E1M1 the player doesn't start at the correct place, but some way to the left (still in the correct room, though).
Danij, Yagisan, could you <a href="http://idisk.mac.com/skyjake/Public/TOMB.WAD">download
the map</a> and see if the same thing is happening to you. I was ultimately able to locate the map by running towards the direction where the sky sphere was visible.
