Thanks for the report! Looks like the foundation is there, so I will try
the xrandr commands and see if I can find out a little more.

For the LCD mode: Does anybody know if this is supposed to work
correctly and just needs fixing with a better modeline or something, or
is this is a hardware limitation which can't be fixed in software?

Would be a plus, but maybe 240x320 is already fast enough.
