Wow, great catch! That would definitely cause problems since the
IDirectDrawSurface macros just call the appropriate function through the

I have applied this patch to my local tree; it will be in the next test

seems to depend on the colordepth change.
Hope this patch fixes it (can't test. The computer where i saw the crash
is at work.)
