OK, thank you, this is how it will be. The "freeglut" behaviour shall be that the idle callback continues to be called when menus are active.
This is a fine project if the guy in charge can't even put changes into CVS! I am at the moment sufficiently frazzled with trying to get a working version out the door that I don't trust myself with design decisions.
Would perhaps a small tweak on RC3 (add a few checks for setting the current window, for example) have filled the bill?

It's your project - I just pay the rent!
IMHO, if GLUT behaves differently on different OS's - then programs
should not have been written to rely on one behavior over the other.
Hence, we could legitimately choose to do either what GLUT does on
Windoze *or* what it does under Linux - and yet still claim to have
improved on the original by making things more portable!
I prefer that the fish^H^H^H^H marine mammals keep on swimming when
you pop open the menu.
