Hello and thank you for your interest. The "TODO" list has a note that
we nned to add a "glutExit" call which sounds very much like what you
need--except that we haven't added it yet.
What do the rest of us think about it?

Subject: [Freeglut-developer] glutshutdown and restart
I have a program where I want to stop and restart the graphics context.
However, freeglut locked up when I tried this. I discovered that it wasn't
shutting itself down properly even though all the code already exists to do
this. All I had to do was add this function to freeglut_ext.h
FGAPI void FGAPIENTRY glutShutdown( void );
then in freeglut_main.c
void FGAPIENTRY glutShutdown( void )
It works fine on the two platforms that I use (linux RH9 and windoze MSVC
If it is acceptable to the powers that be I would really like to see this
added back into the freeglut repository so that I wouldn't have to
distribute my own hacked version of freeglut out to all my users.

A zero-cost great addition to freeglut, IMHO as needed as ExitMainLoop.
I like the glutExit name better however :)
