I've tried one of the tools you reported on my Powerbook. All it does is
set the nvram volume parameter different from the master volume. Maybe it
does something different on the mini - I can send you a debug nvsetenv
binary that dumps the entire nvram to check that. Dumping /dev/nvram
and comparing the binary blobs directly should even show differences
in other places of the nvram (I see two regions that differ, one of these
can be assigned to the XPRAM chunk).
