Firstly, I think this is a documented processor difference.
My PDP-11/05S , 11/10S manual, DEC-11-H05SS-B-D, in table 4-8,
programming differences reads:
11/20: Contents of R are incremented by 2 *before* being used as the
11/05 & 11/10: Initial contents of R are used as the source operand
11/35 & 11/40: (Same as 11/20)
So the halt would be expected on an 11/05.
Secondly, I have an original DEC listing of D0NB. On it I have a
written note (by me) "Bugs according to (UW Madison) ECE". But there
is no notation of that those bugs might be.
The source in my listing reads essentially the same as what you have
written (comments abbreviated to fit on my lines):
7200 012700 006340 MOV #K11,%0 ; SRC and DST BOTH R0
7204 010020 MOV %0,(0)+ ; SRC No Mem Reference
7206 026727 177126 006342 CMP K11,+#K11+2 ; Dest Is Mem Reference
7214 001401 BEQ .+4
7216 000000 HLT ; Failed %(0),(0)+
7220 010700 SCOPE
