I have tried running in fullscreen on several other machines as well,
and ran into the same problem on some of these other machines. These
are fairly clean Windows XP SP3 installations. The issue occurs with
version 1.9.3 as well. It does indeed work with -fullscreen removed.
Furthermore, if I rename /lib/dri/swrast_dri.so to something else, the
affected systems run in fullscreen without issue.
