When running DosBox fullscreen, with "higher" priority
(aka priority=higher,whatever in dosbox.conf), in
Windows, and with a cpu-intensive enough game
running, if you hit Alt-Enter to switch to windowed
mode, Windows takes forever to redraw the desktop
(not to mention the new dosbox window). I'm talking
minutes here.

Solution seems easy enough: When switching away
from fullscreen for any reason, how about immediately
dropping DosBox's priority for a few seconds to let
Windows catch up?
