[SDL] Fullscreen in no-reparenting WMs

There is a really famous bug when running SDL applications in fullscreen 
mode on window manager that does not reparent windows.

When switching to the fullscreen mode the window manager gets completely 
mangled by the application window which stays black and you can't live 
without killing X.

This is known on dwm, awesome, cwm, wmfs, wmii (maybe ?).

Is there any chance to be fixed in the future release?

Kind regards,
