Thread-topic: X11_EnterFullScreen fails

I am trying to set the guest window to full-screen mode but the domain consistently crashes when I try to do that. The problem could be traced to a point where X11-driver used by SDL itself fails. Here is the call trace before system crashes (most recent call last):

SDL_video.c::SDL_SetVideoMode() makes a call to video->SetVideoMode(). (We use X11 video driver)

video->SetVideoMode() = SDL_x11video.c::X11_SetVideoMode()

The above makes a call to SDL_x11video.c::X11_ResizeWindow() which makes a call to X11_EnterFullScreen() (in SDL_x11modes.c)

X11 does support full-screen mode and I am unable to understand why it is initiated by xen. Has anyone tried this?
