I don't have problem with that, because SDL doesn't change resolution on my
computer, propably because I have no onther resolution set in SCREEN section
in XFree86 config file than 1024x768.

On my computer SDL (using hw XVideo) is as fast as normal xv output and I
even prefer it because of better fullscreen option, i can set/exit
fullscreen "in fly" by pressing ESC and it's real fullscreen, no mouse
pointer, covers whole screen etc...
