This won't work. The filter chains *must* be restarted so the filters get the 
correct visible size. And the vout display *should* be restarted so that the 
display plugins can be probed against the lower resolution.

And so long as the window is not disabled, there won't be glitches anyway, so 
I don't really see the benefit.
