Fixed bugs 1034 and 1035 2010-07-28 12:59:27 PDT
Again another bug I encountered on Windows 7:

Assuming I hide my mouse cusor with SDL_ShowCursor(SDL_DISABLE).
Now if my app runs on Fullscreen, I tend to "get out" of it using ALT+TAB. This
will minimize the app. However SDL_GetAppState will STILL report SDL_APPACTIVE,

Also if I check, this *seems* (as much as I could find out)
to be set twice (first 0 then 1 again) while going out of the app with ALT+TAB.
I am not perfectly sure here but even if the app is minimized because of
ALT+TAB (or also CTRL+ESC), is 1.

This happens with the windib driver. Windows posts the WM_ACTIVATE WA_INACTIVE
event with minimized==false when you Alt+Tab out of a fullscreen app.
Responding to this event, wincommon/SDL_sysevents.c:WinMessage() calls
ShowWindow(,SW_MINIMIZE) via SDL_RestoreDesktopMode, but another WM_ACTIVATE
event is not posted in response to that.
Whatever the case may be, WinMessage() should just treat a fullscreen app
receiving WA_INACTIVE the same as a minimized app. Additionally, it's probably
a good idea to clear SDL_APPMOUSEFOCUS at the same time, and that should take
care of bug #1035.
