Strangely enough, if I try a dual head setup and UseFBDev on the external
monitor I managed with one setting to get a display on both, though
the background of the external monitor is not correct. The mouse
can float over though. Trying to display a menu or window on the
external monitor has effects on the first monitor, so this is not
getting much closer.

Hints badly wanted.
