Hi Dr. Zhao,

Yes, that would definitely be a solution. The only drawback
I see at the moment is that either those that expect the old
behaviour have to change all places in their programs that
rely on it or those that already expect on the new behavior.
And finding all the places in a lengthy program being affec-
ted could be a major task...

So after a bit more of thinking about it I would propose
to add a new function that allows to switch between the
two types of behaviour at any given moment. With that
users that depend on the non-default behavour would only
have to add a single line to their program, e.g. directly
after fl_initialize(), to get what they prefer. That
should be rather simple to do. The only remaining ques-
tion then would be what we make the default behaviour;-)

                           Best regards, Jens
