I open the video mode with the SWSURFACE flag. And I create all the surfaces
with the SWSURFACE flag.

I've tested this with the example apps that come with SDL, and there are
also problems with display change. The screensaver works fine though.

I've also noticed that the screensaver bug does not happen if my app is
minimized when the screensaver starts, and only hanges if it's active. It
seems that this has something to do with direct input, I'm not recieving any
ACTIVEEVENT message when my app looses the focus...
