I understand your frustration, but the way you put it is a bit hard. From your other mails I can tell that just a few days ago most of GNUstep was working for your. Now you got bitten by yet another bug in libobjc2 (that may or may not be already fixed). libobjc2 is itself very bleeding edge software. It does great things and is most likely the most advanced Objective-C runtime available anywhere. David is putting great efforts into it and if you, like me, are following the commits for this project, you would be quite impressed about the progress speed. This heavy amount of changes also means that things cannot get tested as much as other objc environments.

If you need a stable, working version of objc it may be best to go back to a released version of clang and libobjc2 or even to gcc. But if you want all the new features you will have to live with the new bugs as well. And be assured, David is rather fast in fixing them.
