Options show wrong resolution as selected if no ~/.widelands/conf exists

Bug Description

To reproduce
1. Go to ~/.widelands/
2. Remove (or copy/rename) the file 'config'. This will simulate recently installed Widelands with no/default settings.
3. Start Widelands.
4. Notice the size of the window (by default set to 800x600)
5. Go to options and observe the selected resolution/size of the window. (Defaults to 640x480, which is the smallest/last option)
6. Without making any changes, click 'Apply '

Expected result:
Since no changes have been made from default, nothing should change.

Actual result:
The window is resized to 640x480 since that was selected.

It seems Widelands and options defaults to different values for resolution when none have been set in the config file. A possible solution would be to create a more detailed initial config when loading Widelands for the first time.

Jepp - haven't noticed this for a while, properly because I have a config file most of the time ;)

The way this was fixed, currently when I go into options, I get another entry below the others which is selected (800x600x16bit). First of, this is out of order with the other elements. However, when I change to any other resolution to any other, the extra option has disappeared so that you can't change back to it.

By all means, it is better than the resolution suddenly changing, but it still has some odd behaviour. Without looking at the code, is it simply inserting the alternative when no others are chosen. Is there some limitation to selecting the other elements, when no resolution have been set in the config-file? Just curious...
