If a GLUT application has a "scanf" before initialization of GLUT, the GLUT window will show up at the bottom of the stack of the windows on W2000. It can be demonstrated by putting a "scanf" function call just before the glutInit line in the simple.c example program included with GLUT. Adding glutPopWindow at different places did not seem to help. If the "scanf" is removed, the GLUT window shows up at top of the window stack as desired. The "main" of simple.c with the "scanf" is shown below.
main(int argc, char **argv)
//adding the scanf line causes the graphics window to show up at bottom of window stack
printf("input a number\n");
return 0; /* ANSI C requires main to return int. */
