[Qemu-devel] [BUG] Displaying VGA framebuffer on SDL does not work corre

VGA framebuffer shows very strange behaviour with QEMU's SDL display:

I run qemu with my harddisk which contains a debian grub2 bootloader.
grub2 is configured to display a 1280x1024 png background image
(moreblue-orbit-grub.png resized to my monitor resolution).

i386-softmmu/qemu /dev/sda -enable-kvm

-enable-kvm is just to get more speed (without, it takes longer
to see the bug).

Running like this gives random results: sometimes, the png is shown
correctly, sometimes not.

But you will always get a bad display when you resize the QEMU window
while in grub's boot menu (a screenshot is appended).

    vga: do not resize the screen on hw_invalidate

    Hi all,
    currently vga always resizes the screen when vga_hw_invalidate is called
    while this is not required and all the other graphic emulators don't.
    This patch fixes it, making vga invalidate behaviour consistent with the
    other emulated devices.

Reverting it fixes the bug.

As this is already the second bug caused by the same commit
and it is also part of a stable version, I recommend reverting it
(then there is more time to look for a better solution).
