      Hi all,

      Sorry about that: first, I disturbed the thread, and second I wrote 
1380 instead of 1280!

      I know that my problem is not related to TDE. I just wanted to point 
out that testing on virtual system is not necesseraly complete testing. 
Anyway, I stopped trying distributions. Even if I would be able to fix my 
display problem by my-self, whichever distribution, that was not the case 
in a relatively short time, I prefer things that install as for a "lambda" 

      Thanks for all,
