[Interest] curiosity killed the cat, or the linuxfb QPA

Curiosity really killed the cat here, or at least my previous Linux uptime. I fired up a demo app with -platform linuxfb just to see. Nothing happened while under my X11 session so I logged in on a virtual console (Ctrl-Alt-F1) and tried again. I had to trigger a reboot remotely to get my screen back. 

Is there any use to this QPA on regular systems or is it only of interest on certain (embedded?) set-ups?
