Yup, it has worked for me before. It's the only way to really get edge
to edge coverage on one TV without ugly window frames showing up.
The last time I played with this stuff I systematically tested 60 or
so combinations to make sure everything worked (the extra combinations
were to cover corner cases in the xrandr modes.)
I don't have a clue as to why QT::FramelessWindow isn't set, maybe that
is the correct thing to do.
