DOTT: no 2nd "room" menus, colonial

Day of the Tentacle (with voiceovers) CD. 1.Jun 1993. [US] English.
No savegame available since the game is being run off CD (scummvm complains it can't write the auto-savegame as well; maybe storing savegames in ~/.scummvm/gamename would be a good idea?)
Since I just started using ScummVM, I have no previous version to give a report about.
$ scummvm -v ScummVM 0.3.0b Built on Dec 17 2002 04:20:47
$ gcc -v Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-slackware-linux/2.95.3/specs gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)
$ uname -a Linux neo 2.4.20 #1 Sat Nov 30 16:41:29 EST 2002 i686 unknown
which is an AMD AthlonXP 2100+ with 256M DDR ram.
The problem is, once the game switches to Hoagie in colonial times, exiting the initial area (or "room") with the chronojohn switches scenes properly, but then there is no menu at the bottom of the screen. The music plays and the game acts as if it'd work, but you can't click anywhere to make the character walk, nor pick menuoptions (they aren't there)
Steps to reproduce (these are from memory; if there's a problem, I can try to give a more detailed steplist upon request):
start game. sit through all of intro (I sat through all other cutscenes, btw).
bernard: pick up flyer. pick up sign. pick up dime from phone. enter office. pick up swiss bank account booklet. open drawer. pick up booboo-b-gone. smile at camera. leave. open grandfather clock.
bernard: walk over to sludge-o-matic, turn it off. pick up super battery plans.
hoagie: look at outhouse (grody!), walk to next "room" towards house.
cutscene with flag designs here.
cuts back to hoagie with no menus.
I'm no expert, but the flag cutscene is one of those "Meanwhile..." cutscenes which is different from all the others. Could that have something to do with it?
If I can provide any other information let me know.
