NSWindows aren't stored in the NIB file directly, instead an

values you mention (background colour, window level) is set during NIB
loading I don't see why your old code did not work.

The old code didn't set the window level (it wasn't necessary on OS X, as
the default value has acceptable behaviour in that window manager).

One point to note with the window colour is I don't think Xcode lets you
specify the window background colour in the nib (I haven't got a mac handy
to double check), while gorm does let you specify the background colour
(and I confirmed that this setting was overriding the one I set in the init

Ah, now I understand, you were using Gorm files for GNUstep and a NIB file for MacOSX. Yes, from Gorm files we also retrieve the background colour and the window level, which explains why your values from the init method got overridden. Why did you use Gorm files, didn't your original NIB files work with GNUstep? Or did you have to improve the layout because of differences in the display of controls?
