CloseScreen() returns TRUE if the only visitor window is Ringhio, so the calling app believes the screen has closed. However, the screen hasn't closed.

I think now that this is an Intuition bug, as if the screen hasn't physically closed then there is no way CloseScreen should return that it has.

Ringhio is not at fault, although it is highly likely that the way it draws its notifications means Intuition isn't aware it is open.

You see that your argumentation has a serious flaw? If Ringhio manages to "work around" the Intuition screen locking system (which it seems to do!), its definetly Ringhio which is at fault for now

You couldnt call Intuition the bad, if you do tests involving Ringhio only. Test "normal" CloseScreen() use, means: without Ringhio intervention, and then tell us, what it returns. I bet that it works exactly as documented.

If Ringhio invents a new display locking method and Intuition for normal users cant handle this new method yet, we should wait for some OS developer (IIRC Rigo is responsible for Ringhio) to tell us more about it. Instead of yelling "bug! bug!" all the time, I mean.

Btw., I share broadblues´ feeling of Deja Vu. Some time back these Ringhio related problems with Screens were mentioned and reported already. But I dont remember yet, where it was. Maybe AW?
