In OpenGL, if you go to the menu and toggle dynamic lights for OpenGL off, and then back on, the dynamic lights won't come back.

Works for me as of g3.8pre-89-gb386a0935. But I have to note that if I turn dynamic lights off and then turn them back on without leaving the menu, they won't show up until I close the menu and resume playing. Not sure if this constitutes a bug...

No, that's normal. When the menu is on the game doesn't run and the light update happens in the tick code which requires the game to be unpaused.
