the lack of error handling is indeed a bug in dizzy, and it will be fixed.

However, the issue of the display being borked is not caused by dizzy. This
also happens with other apps. Tested with supertux. Because the X server
can't be used, SDL tries to use the framebuffer driver instead, but that
fails at some stage (no OpenGL, or maybe something else). That's why the
display turns black.
