Good point. I think SDL and Conholio does it the same way - which is to copy the menu bar screen area (or rather, an estimated location for it) into a buffer and restore it.

So either we should save/restore the whole screen (fool proof probably, but butt ugly), or switch/install a menu bar momentarily before exit.

And that's a good idea too :) How it should work in practice, I do not know. And in this particular context - how will fullscreen apps restore it?
