[SDL] Verified XFree86 bugs

I've been playing around with various version of XFree86 today, and
I've verified that the remote VidMode extension is indeed broken on
the XFree86 3.3.6 server.  It hangs in the following call:
XF86VidModeGetModeLine()

This works fine in XFree86 4.0, but XFree86 4.0 isn't binary compatible
with previous X servers.  I'm working on a temporary workaround, but I
would stay away from XFree86 4.0 for a while.

See ya,
