Re: Public screen closing bug in OS4.1

I agree with you patching CloseScreen() so that it never fails might not be a good idea because this means that some programs that rely on the fact that CloseScreen() returns immediately might get stuck for ever without being prepared of this...

Yes, I can imagine all sorts of potential problems. I wonder what happens if a visitor window attempts to open on the screen while the owning program is stuck in patched CloseScreen()? Some screens are opened with a request for signaling when the last window is closed and will never even call CloseScreen() until the signal is received. Patching CloseScreen() would have no effect anyway. It would be nice if someone involved in OS4 development would comment on the wisdom of patching CloseScreen() in this way.
