I rebuilt a bit of code from my linux box on OSX. When running it, I discovered that if I opened a menu, then sneaked out the top of the menu, I could pick up the main window by its titlebar and drag it away, leaving the menu detached and hanging in space...

I'd never noticed this before, but it seems to work with the menubar demo too, so it is reproducible.
This was with CVS ~1.1.5.rc2

OK, I've reproduced this behavior, however I am not sure 1) whether we can fix this, and 2) if we should even bother doing so, since it doesn't seem to have any negative effect on the application (one might even call it a "feature" :)

I will look into this a little more closely to see if I can find an easy fix...

OK, I've tried various things and have not been able to disable the parent window moving, so I think for now we can't fix this.

Reassigning to 2.0 so we can figure out a proper fix in the new codebase...

The proper solution is to dismiss the menu when user clicks anywhere out of it.

I beleive that this is fixed for FLTK 1.1 now.
