The VGA adapter isn't the only thing being displayed on the SDL/VNC
display - you potentially have the monitor console, and serial / parallel
devices & anything else that's using one of QEMU's text consoles. So it
is correct that '-vga none' is independant of '-nographic' & thus it is
neccessary to fix the crash seen.
