I haven't played with the file handling since it seemed buggy.  I might  
have fixed the bugs with that, but I haven't tested it since I had to  
finish that composition for a class.  The scalars that are saved with  
the patch itself are the actual finished composition.  The files are  
old versions.

So what are your specs?  Pd version?  Source for externals, libs, etc?   
My guess is that its an object incompatibility problem.

I am pretty sure those are harmless.  It worked on my bro's Windows  
machine and he had those errors.  But he had a problem with that patch  
using all of the CPU.  How was the CPU usage for other people?  I  
started it on my G4-800 and it worked fine, but I did most of the  
composition on a dual G5-2.5gig at my university.  That was nice.
