When entering fullscreen mode in Java the application
can choose the refresh rate and colour depth to use. I
made the mistake of always selecting the highest
refresh rate, not realising that this might max out
some people monitors. I will be fixing this so that it
uses the refresh rate used by Windows.

Regards,
Richard
