So goom no longer crashes for you in full screen mode with these flags?  
Hmm, interesting... If you search back there are some messages from me 
and a few others where we figured out where goom was crashing, but not 
why.  I would be suprised if it turned out to be a simple compiler flags 
issue though...

Oh well
