A lot of that text was written by me - but ISTR the warning about mixing the two styles of awake() method predates my updates and came (maybe?) from Matt... 
Who I think added the Fl::awake(Fl_Awake_Handler cb, void* userdata) stuff, whereas the Fl::awake(void* message) is older...

I’m not sure - I stared at the code for a bit, and I’m not seeing anything that would obviously cause it to fail, but then again... If Matt is around (he sometimes is) then he might know more about this, I think.
