"It doesn't know what w1 is"... sounds like some variable names are 
messed up, or declared locally rather than as class attributes, or a
missing self, or something like that. :) To be more specific, I need 
to see more code. If it's a lot, you can mail it to me privately, 
otherwise you can post it to the mailing list so others may shed 
their light on it too.
