This was a problem of GNUstep not getting the tags of the controls
correctly. I fixed that in the SVN code yesterday. There are still other
issues with GNUstep, I am looking into them right now. My feeling is
that Adam made a great application for Cocoa and now wants to get us to
improve GNUstep until this application works there without changing the
application itself. This is quite a challenge, but I think GNUstep is
ready for it. There should only be small issues to fix to get it
working. (OK, this time I may be a bit to optimistic)
