Summary MESS-specific 06709: pc: Running EGA software on a CGA PC hangs the MAME process
Description Trying to run software that uses EGA graphics on a PC driver with a CGA graphics card causes the whole MAME process to lock up and stop responding to Windows messages. Granted this combination does not work on real hardware but it happens frequently when I am testing unfamiliar software to add the softlist and it's rather annoying to have to kill the MAME process every time. MAME should remain responsive and allow exiting normally.
Steps To Reproduce 1. mame pc satane
2. Wait for the disk to boot
3. Press "1" at the menu
4. Wait for the game to load
MAME locks up and can't be interacted with except to kill the process. (Running in windowed mode would be a good idea.)
The software runs correctly on the 'pcvga' driver.
Additional Information Oddly, this lockup happens with the 'pc' driver but not the 'ibm5150' driver.

FWIW this happens with the default bios (0), but not using others (I tried bios 1 and 2).
