    Hi David,

    I have a Matrox Millenium G200 AGP card. When I use scrollback while the
    logo is displayed, random garbage gets inserted into lines that are on
    lower half of the screen.

    This problem also occurs when I'm using 'less' or 'more' to look at some
    text file. Whenever I scroll, the first few lines where the logo has been
    displayed are not updated.

    As someone else noted, the problem goes away if you change the console
    and change back to the first. (Alt-F1 -> Alt-F2 -> Alt-F1).

    Anyway, I think that it's good to make the logo a config option. I did
    not remove any code, I just want to let people choose.


    PS: There was someone else who sent me a response. Sorry, whoever you
    are, I lost your mail.

    PPS: I would like to clean the fbcon code. Would that be accepted ?
