You overestimate my ability to understand what you've done.  For
example, if you say that the versions (naquadah and Gnu's git) are the
same, then why do you maintain both?  Or did you mean that just the
numbers are the same but the packages are different?

Hmmm...  So the naquadah update has spoiled everything?

First of all I attach a file balance-windows.el which you can either
integrate into you .emacs or (better) load from .emacs.  If the failure
persists we start working from that file.

What do you mean by "won't load"?
