In regards to FLTK:

I never could get Frank Da's class to work or even compile.  John Shalf stuff 
worked to some extent, but it wasn't quite optimal for my needs.

However, David Pont and myself (mainly David) have done some work with a new 
class of FLTK support.  It works to some extent on both Unix and Windows.  On 
Unix, I don't have any problems.  On Windows, occassionally, the mouse will get 
stuck and the objects will spin forever.  Its odd.

I'd be happy to send you (or anyone else) our code and hopefully we can make it 
as rock solid as the native stuff...
