Trying some homebrew lipid therapy: a couple of raw eggs yesterday, and some hempseed oil today. Not enjoyable but definitely kills my appetite.

Realized yesterday evening that the BIOS was leaving interrupts enabled after int 0x13 calls. Freed up some more space by studying the instruction set a little better, and stuck CLIs in after each disk service call. Now my E625 boots clusterFix all the way up from a partition, and does not crash after a save. However, it still overwrites the bootblock (not the MBR, though, if it's installed to a partition) and fills the unused part of the last sector with 0xcc. The last probably isn't important but the first definitely is. Good possibility of finishing this tonight, "this" being the accomplishment of BIOS reads and writes from clusterFix.
