Not a compile with debugging, but had another hang at the very end with 
+p. I used cntl-c this time to try and exit the hung process. Got 
messages a little different though not sure if of much more use:

==== [Paused... Press p to resume] ====================================
Press p, q, enter or press button 1 over displayed image to continue...

POV-Ray finished

^Cterminate called after throwing an instance of 

   what():  boost: mutex lock failed in pthread_mutex_lock: Invalid argument

Reminded again of :


though I've not seen any hangs in your code as yet with sdl2 previews - 
just x11 thus far.

The usual exit - where no blocks left 'un-displayed?' - and a cntl-c is 
used instead of (p, q, enter or mouse 1) at the end normally shows:

==== [Paused... Press p to resume] ====================================
Press p, q, enter or press button 1 over displayed image to continue...^C
povray: received signal SIGINT: Interrupt; requested render cancel

POV-Ray finished

On the windows opening only on certain screens have found in further 
playing the sdl2 and x11 options will both use my second screen if the 
width is such that it fits on screen 1 but not screen 0. In other words, 
both options seem to look for a screen size where the preview image will 
fit if the first screen looked at isn't large enough.
