that's a cool fix, indeed. Every couple of months, a user complains
about the distorted logo - so finally fixing that sounds great.

OK ... but AFAIK the VDI mode does not work right with TOS 4.x anyway,
so we can ignore that for now.

Indeed, I don't like the approach with the line-A init very much...
couldn't you simply write the values directly into the pAtariLogo2
array instead?
Also, it would be nicer to only patch TOS here if VDI mode is enabled,
so introducing a TP_VDIRES marker instead of using TP_ALWAYS would be
better, I think.
