I'm still not sure why the NSBundle -classNamed: method didn't work [if
you can figure that out, we'd all love it! :-)]

But then, yes, why using it - what about simply changing the code to be

backend = NSClassFromString (@"GSBackend");

this should work as soon as NSBundle can load a bundle, even if the more
advanced NSBundle's features (such as -principalClass or -classNamed:) are
broken on that platform.

Can you confirm that this change would fix your problem ?
