10 I've found a bug (and reverted) in the matrox driver. When I start the new
11 version on my office system (with a matox g550) the resolution is low,
12 lines appear twice. Worse, it also garbles up the console such that it
13 seems that the buffer wordsize someway got changed as letters appear
14 duplicated and not at all.
