Forgot to mention: in 3Dfx mode, it is normal that q3test opens a black
window on the screen, it is only used for input and is never painted,
thus remaining black, so this is normal. What isn't is that you should
never actually see this, because it should have gone into
non-passthrough mode (assuming Voodoo1 or Voodoo2).
