Maybe a better idea would be to include this in the help file of
[pix_film] so that people know about it. Forgive me if it's in a doc
somewhere already, but I never recalled seeing this piece of info anywhere.
But besides documenting it, I can't really see what purpose it serves to
have that error if it could be changed otherwise. People know they need
a window before they can see anything, anyway, and it's not like the
error it throws says "make a gemwin first, dummy!" ;-)
I could see this having problems if you had either an installation or a
performance patch which autoloaded clips, perhaps before the window was
created simply because the order of operations wasn't specific enough.
Just my 2cents after a rather frustrating day ;-)
