Indeed, it is getting out of hand pretty quickly. Do you want me to give you some SSH access to this notebook? Or, if that's not feasible/useful, what would you like me to test as the next step, so that I avoid flooding you with so much data?

I will try those. But with which kernel? I have been avoiding compiling a kernel nowadays, since they take ages on this notebook, but I can set up a cross-compilation environment, if necessary.
BTW, would you mind sharing your .config?

The only external adapter is one to a VGA port. No traces of S-video here.

OK, I can file a separate bug for this S-Video issue, then.
