As in my last email on my system with DirectX everything works okay.
But when using GDI SDL_ShowCursor when switching between ENABLED
/DISABLED or vice versa it centers the MouseCursor in Fullscreen Mode
and as he uses in his mainloop MouseCursor SwitchOn/Off every loop
SDL always centers the MouseCursor before asking for Events.

I am interested if other people with Windows and using GDI with SDL
could reproduce this problem.
