Wouldn't that mean it's a yaboot problem, then? Of course, the kernel
should do all it can, but if the loader makes a tremendous difference....
Does anyone have a yaboot'ing Lombard that _does_ have a nonblack cursor.
Does the ``happens sometimes'' mean that it doesn't happen sometimes?
It's awfully hard to code this way. :(
