Hi there,
I just checked some methods for NSUserDomain and saw that
- (void) setPersistentDomain:forName: checks the variable _tempDomains whether 
the requested domainname already exists. Shouldn't this check be made over 
_persDomains instead? If I get it right _tempDomains holds the volatile ones.

The check shouldn't be there at all (I removed it) and the one in 
setVolatileDomain:forName: was wrong ... I corrected it.
OK. But iirc Apple's Foundation manual says that both methods should raise 
exceptions if a persistent/volatile domain with the given name already exists, 
while the comment in gnustep-base reads 'Replaces the persistent...'. I 
actually prefer the latter (and now impelmented :-) version of GNUstep since it 
makes more sense to me. But wouldn't that break the *step specs?
