After upgrading to X4.2, trying numerous other drivers, etc, etc, etc, I was
finally able to at least find something else that duplicated the locking
behavior, a quake 3 bsp viewer. Since this is no longer a quake2 related
problem (I thought it was quake2 at first, but I didn't want to point any
fingers outright :)), I'll take it elsewhere.
I was looking forward to pick up my mod coding (from a LOOONG time ago), but
I guess it'll have to wait. Maybe I'll just get another video card. Anyone
know if there are any know problems with tnt2's??
