For the record, it started to work when I switched (in text mode) to
80x50 (I boot in 80x60).  I felt the screen change its refresh rate (and
for some unknown (and weird?) reason all character lines were not the
  same height).  It works, though :)

I could even start a "parallel" X session, using the VESA driver.  I'm
currently in it, in front of my TV, writing about it.  Ain't it great?

Thanks a lot for the hints, I can't be happier :)
