Then try to start with a different resolution, e.g.
crimson --width 640 --height 480
and open the video modes window. If 800x600 is not in the list
it's indeed the issue I described above. CF generally ignores
non-fullscreen modes with the possible exception of the mode
you are already in. If anyone has a better idea how to handle
screen modes, I'm open for suggestions. For now, this is not
a bug but a feature ;-)
