Rather sure, but I can't test it now because I switched my PBG4 12" HD
from hdc -> hda ;) (only with 2.4.21-rc*-ben0 possible). So I can't
use that 2.4.20-ben*. IIRC there was _normal_ console speed by default.

when the penguin disappears (which is awesome from an esoteric point
of view ;)) )
THX again and a nice evening
