Bug Description

On Windows the prc option win-size sets the resolution also for fullscreen mode (pro-rsoft). This doesn't work on Linux/X11. Mac not tested.

Setting the screen resolution manually while being in fullscreen mode allows to play in fullscreen with a higher performance by sacrifying visual quality in form of aliasing.

Tested on:
Linux 32bit (Archlinux)
Geforce 7600GS (driver: 185.18.31)
with Panda 1.6.2

I do think this is an important bug, so we could get consistent behavior on all platforms.
It can be done using the Xrandr extension:

Reminder: when someone implements this, he/she should consider also adding code to fill in the DisplayInformation with a list of supported resolutions.
