I found out this weekend that running NVDI before MiNT also cures the
problems I had on the Milan. I don't know what the recommended
execution order is, but at least that did the trick for me.

Using TOS2GEM isn't really a good alternative, as it doesn't allow
multitasking while TOS programs are run. It's mainly intented for use
with SingleTOS, but also runs with MiNT/MagiC. Its only advantage over
TOSWIN/VT52 is that programs which simply print out some lines and are
finished immediately will run quicker in a TOS2GEM window, as the
overhead for running the TOS handler program isn't needed then.
