Hmm, confused.

[1] seems to say that the 20100923-git-2172af4d1ea713f1 snapshot still has 
that issue, although your later emails suggest it goes away if you don't use 
-resize (which is expected)

You might like to try if adding '-engine 1' to the Xserver options works 
around the problem.

Anyhow, I've fixed a logic error which meant we were doing rather more stuff 
than we needed to for WM_DISPLAYCHANGE in windowed mode (and perhaps the intel 
driver is being a bit hypersensitive about that, causing it to shut down DWM), 
and added a bit more debug logging.  Could you try the snapshot at [2] with 
'-logverbose 3', please.
