Well, I do not think so, because when I launch Warcraft III in fullscreen, and
switch to my desktop, firstly the desktop tries to restore its own resolution
and then it switches to the resolution of the game. I assume that Wine forces
the desktop to the resolution of the game. In fact there is a sort of "flash"
in 1280x768 and the resolution of the desktop becomes 1024x768.

Nothing like this happens with Savage. I will try to find some open source
Windows game to track this bug down.
