Not something the hardware does on its own, and not something udlfb
tells the hardware to do (udlfb sets the default mode from edid on
startup, then paints the green screen -- but then doesn't do anything
on its own unless a client asks, after that).

Could fbcon be contending with X for the framebuffer?

Failing that, I think you'll need to post more about your xorg.conf &
gdm configuration for getting the display to start on the sheevaplug.

Best wishes,
