Hi folks,

I'm trying to write an example screensaver in PyObjC which is a bit  
more complex than the existing example.  One of the things I've added  
is a sheet to configure the screensaver.  I'm doing something wrong  
there (was doing more things wrong, but I found some of them) and the  
screensaver engine is crashing.  There don't appear to be any harmful  
side effects from this--my configuration changes are persisted, and  
the screensaver runs fine, but I want to fix this before I post the  

The code itself is all in one file (including setup script) here:

http://livingcode.org/temp/pastels.txt  (rename to pastels.py and run  
python pastels.py py2app to build)

and the latest crash log is here:


Any hints as to what I'm doing wrong would be very appreciated.  Thanks!


PowerPoint can make almost anything appear good and look  
professional. Quite frankly, I find that a little bit frightening.
