Fixed bug 4369 - Going fullscreen with green knob in MacOS freezes ap…

…p for 15 seconds.

Elmar

creating a fullscreen window with SDL_CreateWindow(..SDL_WINDOW_FULLSCREEN_DESKTOP..) in MacOS works fine, except if it was triggered by the user with the green knob in the top left window title bar.

Then "something" is different, and SDL_CreateWindow hangs for 15-20 seconds (tested in MacOS 10.13 and 10.14).

Responsible for the hang is this code in SDL_cocoawindow.m - Cocoa_SetWindowFullscreenSpace:

        const int maxattempts = 3;
        int attempt = 0;
        while (++attempt <= maxattempts) {
            /* Wait for the transition to complete, so application changes
             take effect properly (e.g. setting the window size, etc.)
             */
            const int limit = 10000;
            int count = 0;
            while ([data->listener isInFullscreenSpaceTransition]) {
                if ( ++count == limit ) {
                    /* Uh oh, transition isn't completing. Should we assert? */
                    break;
                }
                SDL_Delay(1);
                SDL_PumpEvents();
            }
            if ([data->listener isInFullscreenSpace] == (state ? YES : NO))
                break;
            /* Try again, the last attempt was interrupted by user gestures */
            if (![data->listener setFullscreenSpace:(state ? YES : NO)])
                break; /* ??? */
        }

One trivial workaround is to change 'const int limit = 10000' to 500. Then the freeze is so short that it doesn't look like a freeze to the user.

Looking further into the problem, I observed that the function Cocoa_SetWindowFullscreenSpace recursively calls itself via some ObjectiveC messages. I managed to extract a callstack for this (copied below): Note how Cocoa_SetWindowFullscreenSpace in stack line 22 calls SDL_PumpEvents, which eventually arrives at  SDL_SendWindowEvent, which calls SDL_UpdateFullscreenMode (stack line 0), which then calls Cocoa_SetWindowFullscreenSpace again (not shown). This recursive second call is the one that hangs.

Another "solution" that worked for me was to add a flag to SDL_Window that is set in Cocoa_SetWindowFullscreenSpace and causes this function to return immediately if called from itself.

Obviously, this is also an ugly hack, but I don't have enough time to dive into this crazy Cocoa/ObjectiveC business deep enough to find a proper solution. But hopefully it's easy for one of the experts around.

Note that there is a "failure to go fullscreen"-message involved, maybe using the green knob causes this failure at first.

I can unfortunately not provide a minimum example.

Best regards,
Elmar
