Yes, seems to work now, thanks a lot. The hotfixes/workarounds for
the HWcursor mode that you commited together with the SWcursor
fixes are just workarounds to allow graceful restart of the Xserver
and/or switching back to text mode, and not a real solution yet?
I seem to be getting "funny effects" on the display still. Seems
to work ok with software cursor. So far.

Wow, a fully usable SPARCbook with 802.11b, that's just great!

I'm happy and eternally grateful ;-)
