Ouch...  I never saw the error you're getting creating tables, the
"bad screen distance ".x1008a828.a10095220"

Does this happen if you make a new document and put an array into it or
is there more context I should reproduce?  Also, I forgot which kind of
machine you run on; perhaps there's a bizarre machine dependency lurking.

You can make Hanning/Hamming windows by blasting an oscillator right into
tabwrite~, although it's tricky setting the phase.  (you do it by taking
a snapshot~ of the phasor~ output and subtracting that number from phasor~'s
future output.  Not that tabread4~'s 4-point interpolation means that its
input should be between 1 and size-2.
