From WHDLoad's own docs:

"Using buttons from a joypad ($103..$10a/$113..$11a) as a QuitKey will make it impossible for the installed program to detect/check/use a joypad. The installed program will think a joystick is connected. This is because of some hardware limitations that the joypad can only checked once during a 1/50 second. So dont use it for games which require a joypad."

So I think your issue is that using WHDLoad's own CD32 quitkey support will unfortunately stop the slave's own CD32 pad support from working.

Since the slave already supports quitting with the CD32 pad, it should be enough to set a custom (keyboard) quitkey like $59 (F10) or $5d (numpad *) in the icon/info file to override the global one, and that should allow the slave's CD32 support to work again.

Confirmed. With a local quitkey set as a workaround the jump button works again, and the global quitkey works too. You can close it.
