Do you really need/want an answer to the above question?

aready tried - does not fix the problem.

Are you using a flashed unit?

Please direct me to this discussion - I'd like to read about why it
corrupts the screen etc.

I didn't realise that the official release of v2.1 had known bugs that
stopped a successful compile.
How ironic (qv. 1st question)

Some M$ file iirc

Can you name users that have seen this feature working correctly so that I
may discuss it with them?

I was going to name "roland" as a user who HAS seen the error (as well as
me), but he has beaten me to it.

Yes, I thought that too - but it doesn't ...for either me or earHertz.
I wonder why it works for you?
Can/Will you supply more accurate information about your development

Which O.S. did you test it on?

????? ...You don't know what type of bullets I use ;)

bingo! diff file which includes objects, makefiles, .deps, .rocks, etc.
etc. etc.

Anyway, I am sure I can work it out one way or another.
As you said at the top, it is good to repeat other peoples work, it makes
you bored :)

So they tell me.
One day I'll find out how :)

Thanks for your feedback,
