Anyone have comments in this space?

I am sure that the behavior difference of EnumDisplaySettings{A,W} before 
and after window creation is a bug.

I think I will submit this patch (barring any complaints) and try to fix the 
behavior difference later.

This is still a solid fix afaict.

Any comments?
