I think this means lingot is too heavy for the Ben. 

That may be, but I have trouble seeing how this program is heavier than the sdlQuake that runs with decent framerate on the same hardware...hmmm

That's easily fixed. I've attached a trivial patch to swap the left and 
right side of the interface, so the interesting parts are on the left. 
Then part of the graph will fall off, which is fine. 

I haven't tried to make packages for Ben yet, so I'm leaving it to 
someone else to actually apply this patch to the package.
