Because windows' ddraw.dll restores everything when the app exists. I've added 
some code to do that do my ddraw lib. I restore the screen mode when the 
ddraw object is released, and on the last DllMain() unload call, I loop 
through all ddraw objects, print their refcount, destroy all the surfaces and 
the ddraw object. This restores the screen res successfully.

Turned out that many apps do not care to release their stuff... Gothic 2, 
Diablo 2, Moto racer 2, ...
