back again,

Thanks all for the input last night.

I only quickly had a look at pd-extended last night after installing (0.40.3
on openSUSE 11) and opened a single patch and tested audio.  It seemed to

Returning today, I've come across an issue with the help browser.

If I click on a category in the left pane and then attempt to click on
another, in the same pane, this results in an error which prevents me
selecting a new category.  I can still navigate in the right pane, but the
same thing happens again if I attempt to change folder/category in any pane
that is not the right-most.  I do not get this behaviour with pd-vanilla.

The actual error message is as follows, and appears in what I guess is a
Tcl/Tk message dialog

window name "listbox1-list" already exists in parent
window name "listbox1-list" already exists in parent
    while executing
"listbox "[set b "$base.listbox$count"]-list" -yscrollcommand  [list
"$b-scroll" set] -height 20 -width 22 -exportselection 0"
    (procedure "doc_make_listbox" line 12)
    invoked from within
"doc_make_listbox [winfo parent $width] $dir_to_open [incr count]"
    (procedure "doc_navigate" line 7)
    invoked from within
"doc_navigate /usr/local/lib/pd/doc 0 .help_browser.frame.listbox0-list 57
    (command bound to event)

This doesn't stop operation of pd, but it does render the help browser very

any ideas?
