No. I did post the behavior as bug. As per Gabriele's advice.

Perhaps we should call it "poor code" as opposed to "bug" <grin>...

rebol is a work in progress. I agree with you on some of your opinions but this is the way I think of it: I now code regularly in 3 other languages besides rebol: python javascript elisp If I've been working in any of those three for some time, and go back to rebol I feel like I've gone from a big truck to a sports car and the wind is in my face! In time of sheer productivity line-for-line, rebol beats all of those above. Two striking examples are the 'ml protocol which is *sooo* much nicer to use than the python HtmlGen module and pdf-maker is way more efficient that reportlab, in my experience. Stay tuned! tj -- Tim Johnson <>
