Here is someone else with what seems like very similar problems[1], however
also with USB disturbing the display. I can't test that (easily) since a
mux in front of the USB port was unfortunately wired incorrectly in this
first attempt. And USB disturbing the display is not a showstopper around
here, since USB will only be used for debugging etc in my case.
