That is causing the tests to fail. I've never seen that specific behavior 
before, but I think that winex11 doesn't return an error if the resolution 
change fails. This is because some users have "broken" X11 setups which only 
support one resolution. That way games run in a corner of the screen instead 
of bailing out.

The consequence is that the test isn't told that the resolution switch failed, 
and then complains about an unexpected resolution.

I think the problem with the test is that it assumes that 640x480 is 
available. I haven't seen a Windows box yet where this wasn't the case, but I 
think the best option is to check for that and skip the test with a warning 
to avoid failing make test.

Obviously, games that require 640x480 will have issues on your computer as
