Alt-Tab and fullscreen (windows)

If I have my desktop at 1024x768, and a fullscreen app at 800x600, then use alt-
tab to switch applications, the desktop is switched to 800x600. When the
application closes down, the desktop is restored correctly. Is there any way to
intercept the alt-tab event, and allow the desktop to be used at the correct
resolution?

(I’m using OpenGL, if that’s significant - I haven’t tried it with other SDL
applications yet.)

I’ve been able to reproduce the problem here at home.
I’ll look into it.

This should be fixed in the next CVS snapshot.
