Is this Windows with the latest DirectX installed? It seems that 
something has broken there...

All you should have to do is recall SDL_SetVideoMode(). You might get 
better results if you explicitly call SDL_Quit() before the second 
SDL_SetVideoMode(), but you shouldn't have to do this...this is an SDL bug.
