FLTK doesn’t work for me. Since I think FLTK can be obsoleted now that qt is working, I happy to see this bug closed with "Wont Fix".

@Ben: This bug is reported for version 3.8.2 against Mac OS X.  Is it still relevant to 4.0 or the development version?

When running the GUI, the FLTK plots run in a different thread than the GUI. This is not permitted for Mac OS X and results in a crash.

When the GUI is running, the FLTK toolkit should be disabled for Mac OS X.

This bug is related to #42596 and #40242, but they are different (meaning they can be fixed independently)
