Amazing, this is what I am doing. I minus off the 16 lines of the 608, so I am 
running at 592 line in reality.
With the cursor_home program, it does also scroll up the console when it reaches 
the bottom so I see even the last HALT command.
I guess, when it was not homed, it thinks it is and writes out the frame buffer 
and crashes.
