Cool, I wasn't sure if that worked :-).

Bootparams only work in debug mode -- so in addition, you have to 
specify "-d0" (or in your case:
  ConfMan.set("debug", 0, Common::ConfigManager::kTransientDomain);

I just changed it in CVS so that the virtual keyboard is only enabled 
when the _saveDialog is running. Hope that helps.
Not sure if that causes any issues with the WinCE or PalmOS ports... 
chrilith, arisme?

And no "hot keys" are possible on the Dreamcast port either, I assume?
Anyway, we normally allow to change that setting on the launcher config 
dialog. I could add such a switch to the SCUMM options dialog, too, but 
that wouldn't help non-SCUMM games.

Speaking of which, for the next release I was thinking about adding a 
global options dialog which is reachable from all frontends, in 
addition to whatever built-in option dialogs they might have. But 
that's not relevant for this release.
