  This appears to be a bug in the cursor position routine for the 5000/xx
display.  The ims332PosCursor() procedure in pmax/devs/ims332.c compares the
x position against the framebuffer height and the y position against the
framebuffer width.  I think the x position is the horizontal position and
needs to be compared with the framebuffer width (and y compared with the
fb height).  I made this change on my kernel and I am now able to position
the cursor to any position on the screen.
