This bug report is very old. I tried with current dev version of Boswars on Debian 11 and it works well. Besides such issues are more likely related to X11 and video drivers.

Using Debian Squeeze, other information attached in Xorg.0.log.old.

Using Alt+F, I can switch to full screen mode with no problem. I can switch back fine, and then once more switch to Full screen, and back. But the third time I switch to full screen, my display becomes a solid gray and freezes.

I recovered by switching to a console (ctrl+alt+F6) and switching to runlevel 1 and then back to 2.

Same results on the boswars version I have installed, (boswars 2.6.1-2) and the svn version (10114) I built.
