If I remember cleary (but I am really not sure anymore, it's been a
long time that I've hacked the NVRAM stuff in Hatari), TOS 4.0x inverts
the interlace/double-scan bit from the NVRAM value when running with a
VGA monitor. That way you can swap your real Falcon between VGA and RGA
and get (almost) the same resolution in both cases.

In case I remember this right, I think EmuTOS has to be fixed instead.
I wonder if there is a TOS 4.04 disassembly available somewhere that
could help to confirm this...
