Somebody with admin rights or Stefan, please either change the subject line --
ff7demo hangs no more, it crashes -- or perhaps close this issue.

I've done some more testing, on MacOS as well as on Linux.  Timing seems
involved in the crash, perhaps dsound, and graphics as well.  Alas I can't rule
out a winmm/MIDI issue.

There seem to be 3 crash points:
1. knight swings the sword
2. a little later in the intro, facing 3 monsters
3. unresponsive menus appear, zooming into one of the 3 monsters.
I never got past 1. on MacOS.  On Linux, using "DirectDrawRenderer"="gdi" in
the registry seems to reliably get past point 1. and crash in 2. or 3. 
Sometimes I reached point 3. with the default settings.

Using "gdi" works despite the message
err:d3d7:IDirect3DImpl_7_CreateDevice The application wants to create a
Direct3D device, but non-opengl surfaces are set in the registry. Please set
the surface implementation to opengl or autodetection to allow 3D rendering

Other issues:

On MacOS, unless using "gdi", the content of the configuration window is never
rendered until you move another window over it.  That's a bug on its own. Even
after it's rendered, it's not refreshed e.g. when you click the second tab.

On both Linux and MacOS, sometimes a yellow icon is drawn in the top left of
the configuration window. It looks like the window should normally have a title
bar, and that would be the title bar icon; all window content should perhaps
appear 1cm lower (there's void space at the bottom).

Using Ubuntu Intrepid with Intel i915 graphics or MacOS 10.5.8 with nVidia
