So the vga port works properly huh?  It seems you indeed have yet
another connector table.  it seems to work fine with the default
table, so I don't know whether it makes sense to add another ibook
quirk or just leave it with the default set up.

Regarding the panel issue you mentioned, if you set option "MacModel"
"ibook" does turning off the panel work properly?  This will break
your vga port while it's enabled, but it should help sort out the
panel issue.
