I know that it is impolite to send personal mails, but it seems that
I can't post to the freeglut-developer list :-(
Do you have any idea what could be causing the problem described
Feel free to forward the mail to the mailing list.

I've observed that the (popup) menu from cgx stopped working after
upgrading from freeglut-2.6 to freeglut-2.8.
The code works with glut-3.5, freeglut-2.4, freeglut-2.6.
With freeglut-2.8 it stopped working.
I've tested with freeglut-2.8.0 from Fedora FC17.
As far as I can see, it's based onfreeglut-2.8.0.tar.gz from Jan 2012
without any changes.
(1 patch that affects the -L flags for the demos)
Are there any known bugs?
Are any special initializations required?
Attached is a test case: freeglut-2.6 shows a menu, freeglut-2.8 doesn't.
