Both seem to be ideosyncrasies of seminar. I get the same results
when replacing 




I'm on the verge of taking the automatic activation of 
`slidesonly' by powersem's display option out for the
first alpha version, but it'll need some more meditation 
on my part ;-) .

It seemed natural enough in the beginning, but I didn't
consider all side effects...

Alan showed how to circumvent the myslide problem, for
the other one I'm at a loss also.
