Hi John,
I see a lot of these have patches attached already. Are you going to put these in SVN and close them? Please let us know which you would like to have tested before you do so (or if you want them tested after you put them in).
I have two pet peeves as well actually that I'll try to take a look at (with Windows).
The first one is that gamemode does not seem to switch the display mode at all even I request it to do so
The second is that calling
nScreenWidth_  = glutGet( GLUT_SCREEN_WIDTH ); 
nScreenHeight_ = glutGet( GLUT_SCREEN_HEIGHT );
right after a
Seems to always return 640x480 for me. I'll investigate when I get to it. But if anybody has some hints, I'd be grateful!
A last thing I would be happy if we have it would be
glutGet( GLUT_SCREEN_REFRESH_RATE ), though this is not in the original GLUT. Can I investigate this or will it be shot down as it is not in the original GLUT?
Best and thanks for any input,

You can find this at


which is the first page of the "freeglut" bug report list.  If anybody has quick and easy solutions to some of these, I am willing to put them into Subversion.  It looks like some of them already do.
