Ah. You probably need to direct_access to FALSE in the configuration file.

fVDI w. Eclipse or Aranym doesn't allow this feature. Setting it to FALSE enables the corresponding VDI code. I think.
I don't know how to detect fVDI + natfeats driver.
 - I can't check for fVDI presence, because there is also a VIDEL-compatible mode + fVDI driver which works on Aranym.
 - I can't check for the Aranym cookie, because the cookie doesn't state the current graphics configuration.

Anyway, setting direct_access to FALSE forces suitable behavior for your setup. Hopefully.

Ideas are welcome :)

The natfeat-fVDI thingy could be considered a graphics card, because it behaves differently compared to any other graphics solution (except for the Eclipse, I guess).

Nope, the reason for this is that fVDI + natfeats doesn't allow direct access to the framebuffer. Ideally I'd like to detect this, but I don't know how atm. I don't want some ugly bus error handler or anything.

I thought I put this in the documentation, but it seems I didn't.  My bad.
