From Ubuntu LaunchPad Bug:
Reported By: ChrisC (https://bugs.launchpad.net/~chris-chris-camacho)
Binary package hint: compiz
SDL_WM_ToggleFullScreen( surface );
execute this to kill xwindows!
As this is in a lot of games this directly effects bug #1 !
(I feel this is an important issue that needs resolving before release
as this will put off games players trying out Linux for the first time)
see this code for a good example (NB mouse must be over window to see activity)
also notice pause of about half a second every second when compiz is used
Workround: disable compiz, apps work fine
since todays update fullscreen toggle doesnt cause crash
However with compiz enabled still a pause for a second every few seconds
this doesnt happen with compiz disabled
