Again, this is not the case with [wiimote]. I tested the following

* accelerometers, IR, motionplus
* accelerometers, IR, classic controller
All three sensors are updated frequently (I was wrong when I claimed it
got significantly slower; this was due to having the Pd GUI be shown in
a VNC session).

This doesn't work:

* accelerometers, motionplus, classic controller

It seems, you cannot use two extensions at the same time. It's either
motionplus or classic controller, but not both at the same time.

Note: This is with 0.6.00+svn201 (in Ubuntu 11.04), probably this
matters? AFAICT, [wiimote] from svn does _not_ use a local version of

Another note: I experience the same behaviour with wmgui: It only lets
me display two stream simultaneously and it lacks a section for
