Description Alon Levy 2013-07-17 08:28:00 EDT
Right now we allow setting a special registry value to disable surfaces. This feature request is to change the default to off and change the registry key name to "SurfacesEnabled".

The new logic would be:

If there is no registry key then
 do not enable surfaces.
 enable surfaces

 What is the proper way to say there is an unsigned version of the driver that fixes this bug, but no signed one yet? put it on MODIFIED with the qxl-win-unsigned version (as I'm just doing)?
