Yes, I did try. The scrolling problem is the same and the top two lines are
shown incorrectly. So 'ext. mode' looks like a wrong option.

I think I tried every combination of options available. The problem is
somewhere else. It could be the new timing system (dynticks) of 2.6.21+
kernels or my current display with out-of-spec (too large) delay when
changing the active screen (EN1 -> EN2). Wiring is Ok. The LCDd's welcome
screen is displayed correctly. But fast moving info (heartbeat?) makes
*bottom part of* display SCROLL. How's that? I don't have an idea :)

May be try really SHORT (4 inch) wires to check if wiring is the problem...
