Grin, that was kind of a waste product, but I thought I'd leave it in, since
it works so nicely ;-)

The screen shouldn't be garbled (if I recall right, Chris Hopps changed the
defaults for both text and graphics so that they should work on even the 
cheapest monitors). If you nevertheless want to try different modes, either
apply my patches as explained here before, or patch the variable 
"_rh_default_gfx" instead of "_retina_default_.." which is for Retina Z2.

Sidenote for Xamiga24 users: I'm investigating into the problem with shape
extension not working correctly (run xeyes and see, thanks for the 
information!). As an intermediate fix, if you MUST use such programs, and 
are willing to pay a price in performance, run the server with the undocumented
"-noGX" option. Thus, an example startup could look like "xinit -- -noGX".
