The problem was indeed in my display update program (xx), which could not open the display. My Iliad didn't suffer this because I removed the '-nolisten tcp' in start.sh (to allow for easy screen dumping)
The new version of MiniPad (0.2.0) solves this. I attached it to the first post of this thread. Please let me know if this works.
For those who installed the previous version: just remove the MiniPad directory from your memory card, unpack the new version and install as before
