a) If I'd guess, I'd say it was a quick way to avoid having to deal with
keeping the color key updated, and it has worked just fine up til now.

b) As Maarten said, the rendering (specifically, the PutImage operations) is
stalled until vsync blanking, but only if the target Xv window is on screen.
The new backing store code moved the window off screen.
