           Summary: Wine allows programs to change X resolution, doesn't
           Product: Wine
           Version: CVS
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-loader

        ReportedBy: nospam at thenerdshow.com

Wine allows all Windows full-screen programs (games mostly) to change the X
screen resolution.  Most do not correctly restore it.  This is a problem with
Windows as well as wine.  We can fix it in wine, however by running wine with a
wrapper to check screen resolution, like so:

============================ smartwine.sh ====
size=$(sudo xrandr | grep \* | cut -b2)
wine $@

#For testing.  Purposefully set X to a different resolution.
#xrandr -s 1

newsize=$(sudo xrandr | grep \* | cut -b2)

if [ $size <> $newsize ]; then echo "Wine has changed X resolution.  Fixing it..."

xrandr -s $size

Shouldn't this functionality be built in to wine, however?
