Bug: cmd+tab from a fullscreen app fails

This is a minor issue, but it's still there. You can't cmd+tab from a fullscreen app into D3. To reproduce this: open any app (Mail.app in my case), put it into fullscreen mode, then cmd+tab into D3.

On my computer, I can hear the sounds, just as if the game was running fine, but it fails to display anything (ie. I'm seeing Mail.app, fullscreen). It doesn't matter if I play on my external display, or the builtin screen -- still happens.

The "fix" is to cmd+tab into another non-fullscreen app (this actoin should switch desktops), then D3 runs fine.

I'm running Mac OSX 10.8.2; I'll gladly provide more details, if you need them.

Thanks for the report.

Do you know if this happens in other Blizzard titles as well, or just Diablo III?

Can't help you there, D3 is the only Blizz title I'm running at the moment.
