Quartz fix: ut2004 makes a 2D window for the splash screen, which sets the screen surface's pixels field. Then we tear down that video mode and create a GL context, and the Quartz target isn't resetting the pixels field to NULL. When you just create a GL window, the structure is memset'd to zero the first time through, so unless you hit ut2004's codepath, you won't see the bug. :) Without this patch, quitting a windowed ut2003/ut2004 game makes the OS dump a warning about a bogus free() to stderr, but it doesn't actually crash. All we need to do is explicitly initialize the current->pixels field.


To compile and install SDL:

    1.  Run './configure; make; make install'

        If you are cross-compiling from Linux to Win32, you should read
        the file README.Win32

        If you are compiling using Visual C++ on Win32, you should read
        the file VisualC.html

    2.  Look at the example programs in ./test, and check out the HTML
        documentation in ./docs to see how to use the SDL library.

    3.  Join the SDL developer mailing list by sending E-mail to
    	sdl-request@libsdl.org
        and put "subscribe" in the subject of the message.

        Or alternatively you can use the web interface:
            http://www.libsdl.org/mailing-list.php

That's it!
