Not sure how you read that from the test.

It could just be that the surface object is only created on the first
call to GetRenderTarget. Note that in this test we don't do any actual
rendering, so it's not impossible that in a typical application the
depth stencil would already be created the moment GetRenderTarget is

Sure we can. Regular surfaces are currently created with a callback to
d3d8 / d3d9 as well.

I wonder what happens if you release the surface you get from
GetDepthStencilTarget, and then try to do some rendering with the
