Actually, I noticed that, since with my particular config, I need to add
video=ofonly at the end of the param line (when I want to recover in the
same way as Brendan), the penguin logo will stick to the top of the screen
and never disappear until I reboot.

The cute mascot is eating about 4 lines of text on top of the display only
if I enter the parameter line like you show above (+ video=ofonly appened to
it). This won't happen when I do a standard selection. Is that a bug?
