More information:

The update of libsdl1.2 released as DLA 1713-1 led to a regression, caused by an incomplete fix for CVE-2019-7637. This issue was known upstream and resulted, among others, in windows versions from libsdl1.2 failing to set video mode.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.15-10+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl1.2 packages.
