Thanks! That option worked like a charm.
I saw that option in the r128(4) man page, but I got scared when I read it
might kill my FP. So this begs the question; how might turning off the FB
registers cause damage to my LCD (which I *think* is off when docked?)
And is this correct behavior for r128 or a bug? Shouldn't setting "Display
CRT" turn off the FB registers automatically?
