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.


Wish list for the 1.3 development branch:

 * Use /etc/fb.modes, if available, like GGI does
 * Add mousewheel events (new unified event architecture?)
 * DirectInput joystick support needs to be implemented
 * Be able to enumerate and select available audio and video drivers
 * Fullscreen video mode support for MacOS X
 * Explicit vertical retrace wait (maybe separate from SDL_Flip?)
 * Shaped windows, windows without borders
 * Multiple windows, multiple display support
 * SDL_INIT_EVENTTHREAD on Windows and MacOS?
 * Add a timestamp to events
 * Use RDTSC for timer resolution on x86 hardware
 * Add audio input API
 * Add hardware accelerated scaled blit
 * Add hardware accelerated alpha blits
 * Redesign blitting architecture to allow blit plugins

In the jump from 1.2 to 1.3, we should change the SDL_Rect members to
int and evaluate all the rest of the datatypes.  This is the only place
we should do it though, since the 1.2 series should not break binary
compatibility in this way.

Requests:
 * PCM and CDROM volume control (deprecated, but possible)
