Generally speaking .. when a patch gets applied, it's whatever is currently in
the source that's important. It's possible that I forgot an init step, but I
didn't notice. On win32 my sliders were at the max the first time I ran it, on
linux they were set right though.

Having to right-click to toggle it on and off is a good thing. But yet the mouse
pointer constantly warping back to the middle has several inconveniences:

- it doesn't look good

- it's broken on linux, it warps the pointer somewhere above the XY view (making
the other right click not intercepted, impossible to get out of freelook mode)

- on low end systems, if you move your cursor too fast, can you get out of the
window? we had this problem with the texture window in earlier Radiant builds.
There's a way to lock the pointer on to the widget, I don't recall it right now.

So basically I'd like to get rid of the mouse pointer in freelook mode and use a
GL widget as pointer, very much like Q3 does.
