A fix for loosing window dimension is in cvs now. By this sometimes
a toggle is ignored (while already in progress). In addition to this
we may define a "min toggle repeat intervall" to reduce amount
of toggle requests if you still get sometimes in trouble.
Toggleing fullscreen, windowed mode at keyrepeat rate is not a
typical "use case" of softdevice.
