I have not been able to reproduce this. This piece code
effectively does an XFlush, so I suspect that maybe there is
some blocking going on after fl_set_folder_bynumber().
Can you re-produce this with DEMOS/folder.c with Set button ?
(if you're setting the folder while it is not visible, you
can try that senerio with slight modificaiton of folder.c:

void hide_show_cb(FL_OBJECT *ob, long data)
FD_mainform *fdui = ob->form->fdui;

(data ? fl_show_object:fl_hide_object)(fdui->folder);
fl_set_folder_bynumber(fdui->folder, 3);

I am interested in knowing how this goes on your platform.
