Then we should find the faulty code path which sets the variable to false again.
My intention / problem is: I already added code intended for exactly this case of using the "native" controls inside "windowWillEnterFullScreen" and "windowWillExitFullScreen". And I want to avoid that we have another place where duplicated code (regarding setting the fullscreen variable) is added.

Yeah, sure. Is the bug also fixed without your additionally added fullscreen variable change? Then I would prefer if we remove this part and try to fix the real problem if there is one.

> Of course, we could do move the code to the main window. However, if you intend to add lion-fullscreen-support for non-main windows, the current location might be more appropriate, since the code is more about the vout view than the window it is in. Philosophical decision, not a technical one.

If we add fullscreen for non-main windows, we need to move a bunch of code to a more generic window class, anyway.
I just want to avoid that we clutter code across different places regarding one "action". As we already have methods in MainWindow for basically the same notifications, I would prefer if we just use them.

For you, too. ;-)
