Uh, beware of the details.
Imagine: Apps save their window size / position on exit. You reduce the resolution, start the app again... where did it go? (With a whole application, this is not that serious - you can use the task bar or whatever you got to control applications to get it back.
But we had that problem once with a (blocking!) requester *within* an application, which happened to be completely off-screen, leaving the impression our application had locked up... bloody nuisance to find that bug.
Can be solved with some sanity checking by the GUI engine, though, moving windows back into view if they are too far off.
