Could it be preferring -localizedDescription? Is -localizedDescription also implemented? Just guessing here.
Thanks for the hint. I tried that, but still no avail! :-(
Any more ideas?
I wondered if it was a class cluster problem - NSData is a class cluster, but as far as I could see none of the subclasses implemented -description. Are you sure that your category is actually being loaded?
Yes, I am sure. I even modified the implementation of NSData::description in base/Source/NSData.m accordingly. No avail! The method is just not used under GNUstep!?
