OK, that works as far as CPU usage is concerned, but (as advertised) I now 
no longer get any updates in my L4Linux console (i.e. it is blank 
permanently), so it is not usable anymore. Is there any way to have a text 
L4Linux console which does not use up CPU, or should I just not ever switch 
focus to the L4Linux framebuffer console?
