Whenever I drag an SDL window in Windows (or even just press the mouse on the title bar of the window without actually dragging), the application pauses. Is there a way to avoid this?

I had done a search a while ago on that very topic and this was all I found. Although I am still looking for answers or workarounds.

You could probably intercept the Win32 repaint message through some sort of Win32 voodoo, but it would slaughter the cross-platform compatibility (which to me is the point of using SDL).

SDL is open source so one could probably go in to it's code and find where the problem lies. Edit the code, and then recompile SDL. Then you will still have cross-plattform campatibility.
