Yes, but it depends whether you want to receive calls or not - I prefer
to talk to my callers, not have to call them back :)

Its a known problem that has been there ever since they switched to FSO.
Its supposed to be gradually fixed as they move away from python towards
C for the underlying code, but I think scheduling is having a greater
effect at the moment as proven by this hack.

It doesnt totally fix it, as I was just using midori full screen (in
landscape via xrandr) and on exiting midori the caller hung up by the
time the display stabilised - and didnt leave a number :(
