I applied your patch successfully but it seems that the VM does not
respond correctly to -eventenc setting, although it is listed in the
help notes... It reacts as if the parameter does not exist...

A previous solution i applied was setting the parameter correctly, so
i'll try to mix them up to see how it goes...
