Looking at the source, it looks like the parameters are hard coded for
the Windows client and do include neither --fullscreen nor --clipboard.
I started to play with changing them but immediately hit a compilation
issue with an assert failure about timer events outside the main thread
and have not had time to troubleshoot it.

Both features are fairly important to us.  Will this be changed in the
imminent new version? - John
