BrainWash locks up system

Brainwash changes resolution to 640x480 and then won't stop, need to reboot to get back. Suspect a bug in BDirectWindow.

Are you sure it's BDirectWindow and not BWindowScreen ? Because the latter is the one which can change resolution of the screen.

(In #7831) Investigation of the crash in GDB (the one I get after recompiling) shows a race condition in the way the window is created and connected.

I noticed use of BWindowScreen tends to crahs the intel_extreme driver, so it's safer to test this using VESA (or fix the intel_extreme driver to handle 8-bit video modes again).
