Oh, good catch! How did you find out that the Clang version didn’t support the 
2.0 runtime? Is there a warning or similar that I can watch out for in the 
future?

Ok wow – to be honest, based on our experience with the 2.0 runtime, I was kind 
of surprised when all the tests were previously passing. It sounds like 
something fundamental is broken here though and you’re onto it 
(https://github.com/gnustep/libobjc2/issues/136). Let me know if I can give a 
hand with this in any way.
