Check that manual again. fl_do_forms returns an FL_OBJECT* for the object
that had some action occur on it, if there is no callback. Since I didn't
have callbacks in my example program to make it smaller, I needed to keep
calling fl_do_forms so the program won't exit. Try making that change, and
you will see what I mean. The program will exit as soon as the slider value
is changed and the mouse is released. This isn't the problem. The problem
is that the shift-mouse behavior on sliders is very odd.
