I'm getting ~2200, and they rotate in kind of a weird way. It seems like
they were rotating so fast that our eyes can't follow. (Is it possible?)
Also, I found a man page, but that didn't say anything about that
option. (Does it really exist? It doesn't have any effect.)
For reference, I have 2.6.8-2-386 kernel and nVidia GeForce 4.
