It is not only about Debian, but also all other OSes which don't 
have the latest-whizzbang-version-of-everything.
Requiring everyone to update their port of SDL just for 2 lines of code 
aren't necessary is not really any more reasonable IMO.
Correct handling should be to disable fullscreen for SDL version < 
Or just allow fullscreen even if it means switching modes, it used to 
work fine here without X11 and didn't screw up my icons.

If I get svn access I'll fix that since I need ffplay here.
The ssh password for cvs won't right ?
(I used to log in as mmu_man)

I also have a pending cleaned up rtsp fix (which works perfectly in 
linux, seems the NIC driver on BeOS is loosing packets).
