Really?  Well, doesn't that suck.  For me I mean.

Anyone have any idea why all my SDL fullscreen apps would give me that problem
then?  I don't actually know if it's SDL specific, because the only other
fullscreen apps I have that don't use SDL use Glide with my Voodoo 2, and that's
completely unrelated to X.

This is getting irritating.. ;-)
