well, seems that the list to float conversion isn't really working when
converting messages to signals ...

i would consider it as bug, but i'm not sure, if miller does ... anyway,
please file a bug report at sf, that this won't get lost somewhere in
the archives...

more generally, it might be a good idea to think of an improved list
handling (similar to scheme or python) ...
or forbid empty lists (= bang, which is done) and one element lists
(which should be atoms)

cheers ... tim
