While testing the Worms game, I switched to
the full-screen and back. When switching back,
dosemu crashed, leaving the resolution at 320x200,
which is extremely bad.
More interestingly, I did
xrandr --size 1280x1024
to recover, and that helped. But after that, I started
dosemu and it was no longer able to enter the
full-screen mode at all: Ctrl-Alt-f resulted in just a
disappearing window decorator, but without a mode
switch.

I don't think this is specific to the worms game:
I just think the full-screen switching got regressed
and no longer works right.

Suggestion: add a recovery code to dosemu wrapper
script, so that the user is never left with 320x200!!!

    This is an RC bug.
    No release whatsoever can be made with it
    unfixed, or the full screen mode should be
    completely disabled for now.
    It is not related to the Worms game: switching
    back from full screen just does not work.
