I forwarded this mail to the developers list as I think it's more a  
developers issue...

See below for the details...

Greetings, Andreas

Hi all, thanks for your replies.

I did some further investigation and found that booting my laptop  
with linux (KnoppMyth) doesn't solve the issue. But on another  
computer, everything works. So it really sounds like a "macbook but  
not mac os x" problem. BTW, it's funny that the OSD changes aspect  

I'll forward this mail to the dev-list, too... perhaps someone there  
can help.
