Hi Vladmimir,

I have successfully reproduced the issue:
1. Start Kodi with default configuration
2. Change resolution in settings to lower resolution than the screen
3. Exit kodi
4. Start Kodi again (lower resolution restored)
5. Switch to windowed mode in settings
6. Switch back to fullscreen
Here the resolution is set to the native screen resolution which I had
in step 1.

I'm not sure if it is a bug or a design decision since switching to
native resolution also makes sense.
I'm marking the bug as wontfix since I don't want to diverge from
upstream in this behavior and the current one makes sense.
Feel free to discuss that question with upstream and if they change
how switching to fullscreen works it will be available in the package,
