I've now added a unit test.

I've adapted the solution to entirely remove the nested event loop, for the fullscreen. So far everything seems to work.
I've tested it with a simple application to check how the fullscreen behaves.
The logic seems to be added before the beginning of the VCS / 2013
Is there away to look into the history before 2013? Maybe there is a hint, why this was added.
Otherwise i would guess that it is not too important, and it is just an unnecessary overcomplicated solution.
