Simon CD does not work

I am not sure whether this is a bug or simply a question of a game not being supported, but the CD version of Simon the Sorcerer(1) does not work. I am pretty sure that this is the DOS version of the game, but since I haven't used it for many years I can't say for certain. The CD is only labeled "IBM PC or 100% compatible." :( The language is definetly English.
% scummvm simon1dos Detected game 'Simon the Sorcerer 1 for DOS', version 99.99.99 WARNING: No path was provided. Assuming the data files are in the current directory! Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)
(Usage of the -d flag does not give any more information)
I nevertheless tried to start the game in windows-mode:
% scummvm simon1win Detected game 'Simon the Sorcerer 1 for Windows', version 99.99.99 WARNING: No path was provided. Assuming the data files are in the current directory! WARNING: Cannot open SIMON.WAV! WARNING: readSfxFile: Cannot load sfx file SFXXXX01! WARNING: readSfxFile: Cannot load sfx file SFXXXX05! Error: Midi song has no 'MThd'!
The speech files are in .voc format. Converting them to .wav with lame did not help.
This error happens on Linux 2.4.18, gcc 2.95.3 and on MacOS 10.1.4 using many CVS versions of scummvm of the last few weeks. I haven't been able to test it under Windows.
I'd be happy to provide you with any further information needed.
