Re: SDL games not restoring the previous multi-head setup

MAME is evidently one of the good ones: it doesn't break things at all. It
leaves the second monitor (I have two) on; ltrace shows that, while it does
actually set full-screen mode, the mode which it requests is 2560×1024, which
exactly covers both monitors. (Both are 1280×1024; I don't know how it would
handle it if they were mismatched. I suspect that it would cope well...)

Every absurdity has a champion to defend it.
