The mail is older than a year already, maybe it has been fixed already?
And I don't think that we have a proper way to test & debug this (unless
you've got the right version of NVDI), ... so does it make sense to add
such undebuggable items into the todo.txt file?

That might be tricky since the mouse pointer might move when entering
full-screen ... so your screenshots might differ from the reference

fast-boot off is IMHO currently too unstable to be added here already.

We've never seen any difference with this option in the desktop. I
think you would need to run one of the affected games to test this.

I don't think that rtc changes that much anymore, so I don't think that
it makes much sense to test this.

> * --compatible CPU on/off

For this, you also might need to run a game or demo that really depends
on compatible CPU mode. In normal desktop mode you likely never will
see a difference.

Testing hard disk support is likely a good idea.
