That's exactly how it used to be with pm2fb IIRC. Probably the interrupt in
the signal is very short and not always noticed by the monitor, e.g. during
horizontal or vertical retrace.

My idea is the monitor thinks it lost signal because of the RAMDAC
reprogramming and it then resyncs as if it was a new resolution.
