There is no squirrelscsi in C, so I consider that one an unneeded it test.
But not costly.

It's F12+s. And no, that's my whole problem. When I F12+s on Ubuntu it tries
to switch. And almost makes it.
It is fullscreen for a full second or so. But then it goes back to windowed
mode. And then I won't have mouse access until I press F12+s again. Then it
releases the mouse to the window I've been having all the time (except for
the full second of fullscreen bliss).

Hm, under windows with WinUAE AF2006 was no problem for me, just like with
OS3.9 on E-UAE and Ubuntu.

Yes, I did. I haven't used it enough yet to detect any other problems than
F12+s, since it really prevents me from getting the most out of it, and
using it.

It's almost making me consider swapping back to WinXP as the host OS...

Ah, yes... But determening F12+s and if it's windowed mode or fullscreen
surely is the duty of E-UAE? That's why I'm asking :)

Ah, I have a shared drive. And it works okay with SambaFS at least from my
real A4000 with OS3.9. But I have to move from one chair to another... ;-P
