For all you folks out there using the QuickTime functions BeginFullScreen
and EndFullScreen, I discovered a crashing situation that I'm pretty sure
isn't mentioned in the QuickTime PDF manual.

I accidentally had a program that called EndFullScreen twice before
quiting.  QuickTime doesn't appear to check if EndFullScreen has already
been called and will completely hose your desktop.  

If anyone is writing a program that uses these two calls, you might want
to add a couple of checks before switching just in case its being called
at the wrong time.  Better safe than sorry.
