Yes, looks like a redraw problem indeed. Toggling "leitzentrale" with 
F12 key

helps. And it's veeeery slow :(

Also which is strange, 1024x768x16 video mode works fine on Asus laptop

(which has 1400x900 display and NVidia video chip). But on my desktop 

ATI Radeon 9600 XT and a FullHD monitor) the monitor goes out of sync when

setting the video mode up. Both are working in VESA mode. I suspect that

either the video card, or the display don't like the 16-bit 1024x768 
video mode.

And Genode's framebuffer seems to be currently 16-bits only. It goes out 
of sync

when I boot Linux too, BTW.
