It would cause those problems, but shouldn't the user decide what is and
isn't acceptable? Some users might like the convenience of having QEMU do
all the work to make the screen look good.

I think SDL solved this problem some how. I was using a fullscreen program that 
SDL and it managed to change the resolution without messing up all the windows. 
I think there is a way to solve this problem. Maybe someone out there might be 
to share...
