Yes, an old alternative way of blitting graphics data to the screen. It is 
now the default, and this option can be ignored.

A way for RISC OS to know the dimensions of the host (windows/linux) 
windows including furniture? Taking into account double-sizing modes? I'm 
not really seeing a usecase here, perhaps you can explain why you want 
it? RISC OS itself has APIs for knowing the size of the RISC OS desktop.

Edit the code and recompile :) In general though the crash on fullscreen 
is being particulaly annoying to track down, it seemd to only affect 
certain video card manufacturers on specific configurations, it may be an 
allegro bug or an odd race condition. We have a very long term solution 
for it, stay tuned in about 2 years for an update ;)

Temp workaround, try configuring 0mb VRAM, there's a fixed bug related to 
code (rather than video data) being in the extended 2->8MB VRAM setting.
