This mode of passing commandline arguments in DirectFB style, is not supported
by softdevice.

Thats total different from /etc/directfbrc.
Have a look at the softdevice homepage http://softdevice.berlios.de/ .
There are some examples.
By default (no directfbrc file) directfb takes the first mode defined
in your /etc/fb.modes .
