i installed python 1.52 and it works verrry fine!

i tested this and got connection to PD, so gripd object seems to work.

I wrote simple dummy server using python and tested, but still the
GUI part failes to connect, so the ploblem is in this part.

I think it must be compativility ploblem between python 1.52 and 2.1.
it is amazing that we can build my own gui like(rather, more
effectively!) reaktor.

thanks a lot!
