Hi Martin
N.B. Disambiguation -- Martin J. Fiedler ;)

What do you think?  Shouldn't pygame take care about reverting to
original xrandr settings upon .quit()? or may be it is even deeper in
SDL (as hinted by somewhat similar

P.S. 2Martin Krafft: for some reason I thought that you are using
awesome as the window manager.  If you preassign layouts for specific
tags, awesome survives lots of torture without "messes up a lot" effect.

X-CRM114-Status: Good  ( pR: 21.3189 )

Package: impressive
Version: 0.10.2r-2
Severity: important

When I quit impressive, it insists on turning off one of my displays
and effectively reverts my dual-head setup to single-head. The same
happens when I leave fullscreen mode. This is annoying and messes
up a lot of window manager settings.

This does not happen when both screens are cloned (e.g. --above or
--left-of have not been used with xrandr).
