Strangely enough I just now discovered a PyIDE problem.
I'm running MacOS 8.1 on a G3 with PyIDE 0.9b4 and Python 1.5.1.
If I launch the IDE, quit, then launch it again, I crash during the drawing
of the PyIDE splash screen. I mucked around in Macsbug enough to isolate
the crash in the Appearance Manager. I unchecked "System-wide platinum
appearance" in the Appearance control panel, and the crashes stopped.
The calling chain is:
Python code calls DrawDialog
which calls DrawControls
where it crashes the second time it gets there
On a hunch I went into Resorcerer, changed the dialog's background color,
so as to create a 'dctb' resource, and the problem stopped. Strange!
