yeah. it looks like i don't switching current GL context when
resizing, which affects currently active context.

there is two "modes" to blit on Morphic display - one is just copy
directly to Display, and another is to separate form and then draw
that form as usual.
so, these artefact is not related to OpenGL per se, but mainly to how
you make rendered results appear integrated in morphic.
>> 3) creating more than one window would sometimes evoke the debugger. Proceeding eventually would create GL morph windows but they might or might not have valid contents.

everything is in your hands :)
