Ok. That seems related to some unsupported features of the SDL library I 
use for graphics..
Seems like the video is stretched recursively until it crashes when the 
video is to large for the graphics hardware to handle.
I added an <Video_AdvancedWindow> that defaults to 0 to disable it.. 
Also I added a check on the largest size of the window.

Can I get you to try this version?.. Also, please try to set the 
<Video_AdvancedWindow> to '1' in the config file and send med the 
output.txt with the result.
