Done that.  Makes no difference at all--at least none that I can detect.  Still enlightenment_start brings up enlightenment for a second or so, then the screen goes black--and is black on all VTs BUT after switching to one of VT1 to VT6, and typing blindly--after about 2 minutes the console lights up and is back to normal.

As soon as I switch to VT7, there's about half a second of seeing e, then the screen goes black--and again all VTs follow being black.

BTW what do you mean by backlight keys?

Anyway I don't think that there's any `strange interaction', because before I switched that #! switch to 90 everything was alright--apart from e-dialogs complaining about unconfigured screens (or so, can't really remember the wording).  Thus it's certainly not a problem between e and my hardware.

I suppose I'll try to try the Phabricator, it seems to be somewhat difficult to enter there...

C ya, e.
