you obviously missed the point - file out names on *any* platform
should be limited to the lowest common acceptable denominator (DOS 8.3
would not be acceptable).
Apropos Mac: Andreas recently clarified the behaviour of the
ioSetScreenSize primitive. AFAICT the Mac implementation does not
comply, because it changes the display resolution even if fullscreen
was not requested. Similarily, there is no way to go back to the
original resolution. Are you going to change this?
