Issue description
Item 292 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:15:21

The procedure can be reproduced (at least on my computer, don't have access to another smileys/2.png )

I do: ./ufo (game starts FULLSCREEN) go to 'options' change the resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 click on EXIT (or any other link, like AUDIO etc.) the game Segfaults immediate.

Backtrace attached. If you need more information (maybe more debuginfo of libraries?) let me know. I can try to get them.

Regards, Dominique

Tried with the latest drivers from nVidia (1884) (as we assumed a Graphic Driver Problem) and the problem is still there.

I also tested Nezius (as discussed in chat) and to change the resolution there; Nezius does NOT HAVE this issue.

The developmet seems to go in the wrong direction: -At the beginning (when I opened this bugreport), only changin resolution in full screen mode was affected. In the latest SVN Release, resolution change is not possible in fullscreen AND in windowed mode.

Also, changing from Windows to Fullscreen is not possible anymore (except with start parameters)

Tell me if you need more information.

Last time I checked it was still an issue.. can't tell what version it was.

So I'll just check out the latest SVN these days and give a status report of it. So we know for sure.
