Clarification - only affects OpenGL rendering:

Surface* Graphic::create_surface(int32_t w, int32_t h, bool alpha) const
 if (g_opengl)
  return new GLSurfaceTexture(w, h, alpha);


void GLSurfaceTexture::init(uint32_t w, uint32_t h)
 assert(h); // <<<< ASSERT FAILURE. h = 0.

My Bug. I'll Look into it - a zero height surface makes no sense and is a waste of memory.

Fixed in r6477. I changed my mind and basically just removed the assert statements. There would be a lot of corner cases that would need extra testing and could fail (just) in panel.cc, so I decided that the few bytes for an empty surface are really not worth the trouble.
