Display Mode Issue

After 5.1, choosing Windowed mode and maximizing the screen (command+ M) no longer allows the use of expose or adjustments to screen brightness (without minimizing WoW).

Choosing Windowed (Fullscreen) does allow both of these options while the game is fullscreen, but reduces the clarity of the game. It looks as if I'm running it on something other than native resolution, when I'm not.

I also noticed some mouse input issues when using options other than Fullscreen mode.

All of these issues occurred post 5.1.

What's going on?

Going from Fullscreen to Windowed (Fullscreen) causes the screen to blur, similar to if the game was running at lower than native res.

If I minimize WoW, and then Maximize it, I can use expose, adjust screen brightness, and the clarity returns to normal.

It was not this way prior to patch 5.1.
