The apps that do this are usually running in fullscreen mode. I changed
the binary to be a small shell script that called the newly renamed
binary with the flag to run in a window. On LCD monitors, changing to
800x600 may cause the screen to just o black making users think
something is more wrong than unsupported video modes.
