OK, without any of the DEBUG_* options enabled the kernel SEEMS to work with
no problems. But I don't know how I can assure there actually is no memory
corruption...

For me the big question stays why enabling the DEBUG_* options results in a
corrupt cursor and the false dots on the top of each row... (with both
kernels)

And, of course, why enabling vesafb in -mm1 leads to memory corruption. (as
Vladis already mentioned, the same binary works if vesafb is not enabled via
the 'vga=xxx' boot option).
