Nothing. I'm the most surprised when they navigate their way through the entire system on the first run without making anything blow up.

    [Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - no, I haven't looked at wakeup intervals ... I wonder why it should want to wakeup periodically because it gets a lot of messages from the Windows message loop (on Windows obviously)
    [ambrus]: (Alternately a deep source dive and then rewrite that event loop to make it better, and then as a bonus you get an idle method.)
    [ambrus]: The 0.2 seconds wakeup is likely a workaround for some bug, but I can't guess what bug that is.
    [ambrus]: It's been there since Prima 1.00 iirc
    [Corion]: Hmmm... Weird. Maybe it needs that for doing its timers or something. Still weird.
    [Corion]: But I guess I'll find out soonish, as my application seems to use Prima for more than just displaying the OpenGL output soonish ;))
    [ambrus]: No, I think the timers are handled fine in the event loop, as far as I can see.
    [Corion]: So far, I liked Prima quite well as it simply seems to do what I want even if it has an upside-down coordinate system. But it installs from CPAN out of the box and is cross-platform
