At a7fdb6e648fb the screen works but the keyboard is broken. I think
that the screen was actually fixed by an earlier commit, but when I
tried to run a regression test to find when the keyboard problem
appeared after the screen was fixed, I gave up because testing each
revision takes about half an hour and the keyboard problem appears to
be somewhat intermittent.
