Using SDLMAME 0.183 with Linux Mint 18.1, kernel 4.8 and NVIDIA proprietary drivers, I've confirmed that an invalid target screen does not throw an exception as it should.

I was unable to reproduce the screen0 issue. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist; however I can't extend displays under my current setup, only mirror them, so I can't say for sure.
