[PD-dev] OS X 10.2 midi, tcl/tk problems ;-(

I saw a friend get midi input (using a midiman USB 2x2) with 10.1.5 and 
PD without success. I could ask him to see what he did, but he was not PD 
expert, just a bigginer... 

I'm using the same version of tcl/tk on my OSX as well, and I can confirm 
the mouse movement update issue. Mouse movement is not required for a PD 
GUI update, but it does seem to speed up GUI updates... 

Good luck!
