Actually it should be fine to do this on both Windows and Mac
(UNIX/X11 doesn't support this anyway).  The only serious issue that I
can think of is that the new windowBoundingRect property isn't reset
when you change the resolution, so windows may not always open in
appropriate places.  What probably *will* get you into trouble is
changing the color depth (8/16/32).  In particular changing in or out
of 8-bit depth from either of the others will likely get you a
psychedelic display though probably not a crash or other misbehavior.
