Have anyone notice that GLUT programs running slower and slower each time you launch it? Not only that, after running then quitting a GLUT program, when I use SiSoft Sandra program to check on my video status, I noticed that the amount of free video memory actually dropped!!! This doesn''t happen to non-GLUT programs / games (Quake 3 ...etc)

This really does sound like a memory problem on your part. I have no problems like this using GLUT, and neither should you. Post some code :0

Nah, it''s got nothing to do with my code. It even plays up with the GF3 demos by nvidia!!

I''ve got a SUMA GF3 Ti200 btw, just in case anyones heard bad things about it, I''d like to know.

At first I''d thought that it was just a bug with the nvidia demos, then i got hold of the "Red Book" and some GLUT code examples. And it eats up memory even for the simpliest GLUT programs!

nvidia demos are often pretty badly written
my guess is youre using win9x?
and to close the program u click on the cross on the corner of the window (or alt-f4)?
