Posted to the forum:
I've tried out Agent Jones' fix and it works pretty well. It can be unresponsive while the game is loading a map -- it can take a few seconds -- but that's because it relies on internal game code to minimize the game window when it detects that the window is no longer active. Still a massive improvement on having to use the task manager.
 
I've not been able to reproduce the CropRenderSize error though. I've tried loading several maps while switching in and out, and I've tried leaving TDM in the background to complete the load. No errors yet. I'd like to plug that gap before committing it. Has anyone found a reliable way to make the game crash using the script in the OP?

Duzenko's 0003568 patch appears to achieve the desired result. Moving to 2.06 for further refinement
