Not expected but not surprising.  The graphical hardware 
tests/diagnostics were developed for the 1.5. In XO 1.0 we only had the 
text based tests. I suspect that the 1.5 graphics stuff came along for 
the ride when we started building newer XO-1 firmwares.

We should disable that command for XO-1.
