[Qi - SHR-U/All?] Pink line of death

I've also seen this bug and I've also tracked it down to OMNewRotate. My
solution so far was to always disable rotation before going into
suspend. Not doing so seems to give a chance of (almost?) 100% failure.
Note, that I keep the freerunner strapped in a horizontal position to my
belt - so during suspend it will almost certainly be rotated, unless
rotate has been switched off.

Interestingly there seems to be a step before the pink line is shown:
Sometimes when I boot and do not enter the PIN immediately (but still
before suspend), the screen is partly garbled (lower 33% of the screen
in portrait mode). After suspend, the pink line shows up.

Listening to the feeling in my gut, I'd say glamo b0rks screen setup
when in a rotated position.

Hope this helps to narrow it down. Meanwhile - is there a way to disable
OMNewRotate on boot and suspend (i.e. to only enable it manually)?
