What I saw on my systems was that SwitchMode left the viewport in the
top-left corner (i.e. what most apps want) but that SetViewPort doesn't
do anything (so the few apps that want a different viewport lose).
This seemed similar to your problem, I guessed the cause would be the
same. Apparently not though.
