I was able to display 800x600 by setting the width&height and the mode
(using data from my display card). But the cursor does not display
(the mouse works otherwise) - unless I turn off the mouse driver.
So I suspect the problem is in the mouse primitive. That would explain
why things would work with a mouse integrated with the video card.
