Althought I never considered this game startup/pause screen a good idea 
worth of implementing in any game but it is probably just me :-)

To me it seem like it is result of typical Nokia non-multitasking way of 
implementing games in phones. Perfect for phone but not needed in proper 
multitasking environment with multiple windows and window/task  manager. 
Second reason might be that the trick with SDL_VIDEO_X11_WMCLASS was not 
known in early IT2005 times so this was a way to avoid the missing icon 
in task manager.
