Do you have any particular canditates in mind? I've read through
Startup-Sequence, AmiKit-StartOS, AmiKit-Startup and User-Startup. But only
the usual suspects turned out, like iPrefs and loading monitor drivers.

I think you are right to suspect the boot sequence of AmiKit, since F12+s
works for a while until something is loaded during boot.

Yes, it's nice eyecandy only :) But we're suckers for it :)

In ScreenMode prefs I have the usual uaegfx modes that I'd expect to have.
And I can test them all, only - since I'm already booted I can't swap
between linux and e-uae. Only change modes inside e-uae.

I will post on the AmiKit forum too. I installed E-uae using the unofficial
deb package on ubuntu hardy heron. I installed AmiKit by the install
procedure on the AmiKit pages, using an AmigaOS3.9 CD as source (I've copied
both my OS3.9 and AmigaForever 2006 CD to my drive).

So debug or other output from the uae or uae-sdl binary isn't what will
unlock this mystery?

Thanks for you help! :) I hope I get to the bottom of this, because I want
to work on both my linux and amiga at the same time (cross compiling and
