Totally agree! A proper fix would be much better. A 
"plane_f0_not_working" in the meantime is OK with me.

Note that there are other things not working with your current 
implementation, for instance you cannot set the X/Y start position of 
the f1 plane, which means it's only really usable for fullscreen

 From what I remember, it wouldn't show anything on screen, and after 
that trying to use the f1 plane wouldn't work either.
