[REBOL] Some very very strange behaviors

From: luca::truffarelli::it at: 24-Sep-2004 19:10

Hi all! I got some VERY strange behaviors with Rebol on my WindowsXP. First of all, the computer is a box that I use at work so it is installed by someone else other than me. This mean that I know what is installed in but I can't not be sure of it. Second, the problems are rised with any kinf of connection to internet I use. I tryed thru the proxy, thru a dial-up, thru my ADSL, .... So the problems are not caused by some network problems. The is some of the problems, be prepared to hear things that no men have ever heard: 1) I can't download every rebol plugin applications. Someone load but other don't. Eg.: LOAD while DON'T LOAD But this is just the last, and less significant, problem. 2) I open a rebol console (/core /view 1.2.1-1.2.47-1.2.48 is the same) and write aa: read it read the page. Them if I write it again it read the page again, and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and STOP. After 9 hopes it doesn't read the page no more. I can reproduce the problem how many time I want. I jyst need to close the console and open it again. :-) 3) This is a bit complicated, but in few words I wrote a client/server application. Every x minutes the server send a PING to the client to verify it is there. After a random period of time the server send the PING but if the client is on my computer is doesn't receive it. I traced it thru tcpdump and I saw the the packet arrives but the 'wait doens't wake up. This happen only if in the 'wait there is a 'time data type. It's funny, do you agree? I think it is enough. :-) So I quite sure the problem is between my computer (or the TCP stack of my computer) and Rebol (or Rebol like style to access the net). But want could be the problem? Where can I investigate? It is too strange for me. :-) Please, write me something, a "Don't worry be happy" is enough. :-) Thank you
