    [Bug Report] - Modelview Matrix Doesn't Update After Selection


      First off I'm not sure this is the correct place to put this kind of thing, so if I should direct this somewhere else please let me know.


      I am running an i5-2520M with HD Graphics 3000 driver version on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.  I noticed while debugging a program that models would appear in places where they shouldn't be, seemingly for no reason.  After poking around for a while it appears that when using the old style OpenGL selection via glRenderMode(GL_SELECT) after returning to the regular GL_RENDER mode the modelview matrix cannot be updated using glLoadMatrixf(...) until an object is drawn, essentially causing the first model drawn after selection to be placed in the location of the last model drawn during selection.  I took an OpenGL tutorial program from the internet to avoid having to do all the GL window setup and modified it to duplicate the issue (please ignore any code remnants that appear as a result).  If you run the program shown below on a card running the above driver you should notice that at first there appears to be 2 partially overlapping triangles which is what we expect.  In actuality the left (solid red) triangle is being drawn in the same location twice and the right triangle (partially transparent green) is being drawn once.  This is to help show the issue in a second.  After the program loops through selection to rendering (slowed down via a sleep call so the change is visible) you'll notice all of a sudden the first red triangle drawn is in the location of the green triangle while the second red triangle drawn using the exact same modelview matrix and vertex data immediately after the first is in the correct location (where it appeared originally).  If you hit spacebar you can toggle on/off the switch to GL_SELECT mode which will make the problem appear/disappear respectively.  This bug does not appear on any of the non-Intel cards that I've tested.  Any help with this issue would be appreciated.
