If the bug is fixed when hw-acceleration is disabled i think a good idea would be making the libdirectfb or the gtk-rootskel udeb containing anto /etc/directfbrc configuration file that contains

#prevents DFB from using hardware acceleration
#lets user dumping screen by pressing "Stamp" key

Mmm, Attilio, i don't think this file should be hardcoded like that, but
better provided by rootskel-gtk, or generated from rootskel-gtk at early
runtime, as we may wish to make it configurable from /proc/cmdline, and do
some more advanced matching depending on graphic card used or architecture, as
i proposed yesterday.

yes, now i'm convinced too that the right place for the "/etc/dirctfbrc" file is not the libdirectfb-lib; maybe the gtk-rootskel is a better choice for a "static" configuration file. I know that installation logs can be retrived via an http server at the end of the installation, so maybe we should tell DFB to place the screen dumps where they can be accessed by the web server (that may need some modifications to be able to serve dumps), could this be a good idea? If we could access screendump files via HTTP server, would still be useful a d-i boot option that tells DFB where the screendumps shall be placed? Anyway i think giving the user the ability to take dumps of the screen could be very useful for bugreporting, what do you think?
