When the HOME GRID parameter was first added to the program, it was done
so you could center a grid map in the right place. I decided to also use
this paramater for the beam heading feature without remembering it will
also try to turn on a grid map (and thus go into VGA mode if available).
WI0R found the same "feature".
I will separate the two - GRID MAP CENTER and MY GRID. That way, the two
don't have to be in the same place.
