Steam version crashes on Alt+Enter and Alt+Tab
Literally unplayable™

Hi. After one of the recent updates (I haven't played in a while, but one thing that is certain is that ADOM has been updated via Steam) I started getting easily reproducible crashes that can't seem to be explained by anything.

Basically it's like this:
1) start ADOM;
2) Alt+Enter or Alt+Tab to leave fullscreen;
3) Alt+Enter or Alt+Tab to return to fullscreen;
4) enjoy your crash. If you got it via Alt+Tab it will also capture your window focus before crashing and will remain in the process list until you kill it manually.

ADOM version is r60, buildID reported by Steam is 745434.
My settings are:
Fullscreen — on,
VSync — off,
Renderer — SDL2,
Software fallback — no.

My system is Windows 7 x64, fresh DX and drivers, non-potato hardware.

Not sure if this is fixed in r61 (I guess it won't be up for the beta testers until release), but it's kinda hard to play like this.

Quick update: fiddling with video options (changing renderer, etc.) either doesn't change the situation significantly or crashes the game outright.

Ran into the same bug a few days ago, but Zeno did his magic and it should be fixed in R61 if I recall correctly.

Oh nice. Figured this had to do with NotEye, good to know it's getting fixed. Cheers!

Confirming: this is fixed in r61, but going from fullscreen to windowed (800×500 in my case) tends to leave the upper window border above the screen, making it impossible to move. Mildly annoying, but obviously a big step forward from r60.

Misplacing the window should be fixed for the next release.

Fixed by Zeno. The window position is fixed in the Steam version, not the R61 version for backers!
