Hi Thierry and Alexander, and thanks for the quick replies.

30 minutes after I posted to this list, the computer (or the monitor=) broke...
I suddenly got "no signal" on the monitor, but the box still works (I can ssh into it).

So now I have to figure out first what broke, and how to replace it
:-( I will be able to test your suggestions andreport only after this
is solved, one way or another, but to gain time, here is a question:

What you suggested is clear, but it is two different / independent
things, or so they seem to me. So what is your advice? Should I do
only one and the othe other only  if the first fails? If yes, in which order?
Or both?

(hoping to come back soon...)
