Hi friends,

for somebody who knows about PyGame:

When I have the window fullscreen on Windows, switch to other
applications and come back later, I get the following exception:
   File "D:\pypy\src\pypy\translator\tool\pygame\graphdisplay.py", line 
591, in run
   File "D:\pypy\src\pypy\translator\tool\pygame\graphdisplay.py", line 
513, in process_event
   File "D:\pypy\src\pypy\translator\tool\pygame\graphdisplay.py", line 
562, in process_VideoResize
   File "D:\pypy\src\pypy\translator\tool\pygame\graphdisplay.py", line 
54, in resize
     self.screen = pygame.display.set_mode((w, h), HWSURFACE|RESIZABLE, 32)
pygame.error: DirectDraw2::CreateSurface(PRIMARY): Unsupported mode

My guess is that some of the mode flags are not suitable if the
screen is in full size mode. But I don't know.

ciao - chris
