I agree it's not that big of a deal. Maybe we should investigate how other
software behaves on Windows in this regard.

It looks like when you switch away from a full-screen (Flash) YouTube video,
the video exits full-screen mode (on both platforms).

When you switch away from a full-screen instance of Windows Media Player, the
video exits full-screen mode.

When you switch away from a full-screen instance of QuickTime Player (on
Windows), the video remains in full-screen mode.

The Flash YouTube example seems the most applicable, since it's the only other
case that has a "source" window that the video originated from (and is still
present in in non-full-screen mode). But that doesn't mean we necessarily want
to copy Flash's behavior.
