No. System Settings --> Advanced Slim Settings --> General --> LCD...

I am not too sure if I translated this correctly from the German settings, but you should be able to find it now!

Then the problem was gone and flashed back to slim. Now all works well. Too bad I was so pissed off, I did couple of things at a time and can't really say what fixed the problem. Last weekend I drove over 600km without losing fix.

Use root explorer and go to /system/etc/gps.conf
In the first line you will see the NTP server. In Slim it is by default set to world.pool.ntp.org
To get maximum GPS performance you must change it to the most appropriate server for your region. For example, here in Greece we change it to europe.pool.ntp.org
After you succesfully change it (remember to select mount R/O instead of mount R/W in root explorer before you edit gps.conf file) save and exit. Reboot your phone and use some app to clear your previously downloaded gps aiding data (for example "gps test" by a dev named Mike Lockwood, check it on Play Store).
Get out of your house, in the open sky, enable 3G data and GPS and start searching for satellites. New aiding data will be downloaded and your GPS will lock quicker than before.

I have already done this all and even more. This does definitely not help! I noticed that sometimes this improved the TTFF, but the phone looses the fix immediately and does not get it back. My guess is, that the problem is caused by unstable values from the other sensors like compass and accelerometer.

I was out under clear sky for more than an hour without getting a fix, btw.

Has to be a phone specific ( gps module) issue. I sit on my living room and get fantastic gps in airplane mode both in my SGS and Gnex.

Why does it work flawlessly with Gingerbread ROMs then?

EDIT: And why did it work with ICSSGS RC4.2? And as far as I remember it also worked with Slim 3.0...

That leads to the question what gps related parts in android changed from 4.0.3 --> 4.0.4
