Hi Marius,

thank you for pointing that out.

I had added vt(4) behind comment markers in that file, since I did not
know whether splash(4) was used with vt or not.  From the feedback that
I received, I assumed that it should work (and I seemed to remember
that there was some kind of splash support in vt), but apparently in
error.

I'll back-out the change from splash.4 then ...

Best regards, STefan
