Yes, that's a rather unfortunate effect of using a display with
a delta matrix:

Definitely a "feature" you'd want to get rid of while changing
the LCD. There's more, e.g., the orientation of the cable that
requires an adapter board, which in turn moves weight where
you really don't want it, which in turn causes Bens to easily
fall over when the clamshell is open. Well, unless you have one
of these :-)
