yes it does, i looked at blit_colorkey for some stupid reason. well it
doesn't seem to happen with df_dok then. is this because the source
surface is not being written to (since melted.png is only rendered at the
start) ?

yes i noticed the problems while displaying videos. i will clarify my
problem again. when i display a video with software stretchblit it is fine
and let's call this speed speed1. i then change the software stretchblit
to a hardware blit and this i also fine. now when i change back to a
software stretchblit it gets played back at speed2. now the problem is
that speed2 is much slower than speed1. so what i am feeling is that
something is not being reset properly as a stretchblit is capable of
speed1 but for some reason it can't after swithing from a hardware blit.

in both cases the software is writing to a surface and then blitting using
hardware and software. there is no reason why stretchblit should have
different performance from the first time and the second time. this is why
i think there is a bug somewhere.

i don't know if u misunderstood my problem or i misunderstood your reply
but i think we are talking about different issues here.

yes, that's how i have done it and they don't occur.
