Hey, hows it going ?

Actually, no. Have become a victiom of my own success really - I
wrote a content management app under GNUstep / Renaissance for
my own use - then gave it to a few of the contnet guys who have OSX.
...who then ditched the old system in favour of it. So now I need to
get it deployed to the three people left using Windows in the office.

[suggestioons today that we buy them all Mac's were not treated with
glee sadly, having just bought them all brand new P4's]

Cygwin contains one - but it doesnt quite work with GNustep
so I just did a make install from the libobjc in dev-libs from CVS.
Is that code up-to-date ? I assumed so, but maybe it isnt ?

Ah, O.K. - thats interesting, because if that fixes it then maybe it
wont be that hard to track down what is up with it (and its
a fairly viable workaround anyway I guess). Excellent! Thanks (how did
you nwork that one out BTW?)
