Description Cole 2007-03-23 13:12:26 UTC

OpenSUSE 10.2 (up to date patches)

I use an application that launches in full screen (frozen bubble in this case), which I believe uses SDL.  Sometimes during a game it switches back into window mode.  It gets positioned to the top left of the desktop in each case.  You have to click on it to regain focus and to regain the key input.  The maximise button does not work, though after a short time of play (for no reson) it switches back into full screen.  Seems to happen pretty regularly.

Kind regards

And this doesn't happen with other window managers? SDL switches out of fullscreen mode when e.g. a popup window takes the input focus away from the fullscreen window.
