John talked about the first ten *columns*, I've seen it on the ten or
so first *rows*, with a Zeus (040) A2000 and a Z2-Retina. Like
Andreas I've only seen it when getting much console output, like now
when I debugged my interrupt patches (printf's in the spl's and
interrupts generate a *lot* of output!). However I don't think it's a
big problem, as it scrolls off the screen quite fast, and only occurs
in text mode.
