Package: wmaker
Version: 0.95.6-1.2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After upgrading wmaker and related libraries to 0.95.7*, various programs
including some (but not all) OpenGL / SDL apps no longer work in fullscreen
mode and sometimes even crash.

The easiest way to check this is to try and switch between fullscreen in DOSBox
The result on broken Wmaker is .. weird.

Downgrading wmaker to 0.95.6-1.2 debian package corrects these issues.

Please notice! This issue might very well be hardware (Intel HD Graphics 4600
Haswell / core i7-4770) dependant. At first I suspected the recent Xorg, Mesa
and Intel DDX upgrades, but somehow Wmaker seems to be the culprit ...

I am running a custom kernel, but the issue occurs on stock Debian kernel as
