no, it can't, cause the mode is actually set and works, but some single lines
(!) just don't work (and they change if I run the program twice or more) - so
this screen is 256 lines high, and for example lines 3, 180, 185 and 200 are
let's say gray - any idea why?  (the amount of lines and which lines seem to be
totally random)

well, I have no simple example for that unit now, but for example just fill the
screen each line with a different color, and you'll see...  (BTW, works on a
ET4000 and on my new Cirrus Logic-based card...)
