Hi all!

Im using the 'cm-2.4.0.dmg.gz' distr. of CM together
with the <www.porkrind.org/emacs> GUI Emacs.

Does anyone else have this problem ?
What can I do about it ?
The ':versions' feature is great when testing
things out and doing automatic backups before
any unpredictable new results !!



--- Sample session using 'VERSIONS-feature' -------
;; as in 'intro.cm' using the absolute path
;; "/tmp/" (which in OSX is a (writeable) symlink
;; to "/private/tmp/" directory.
;; Before commands below Ive successfully made
;; the "test.midi" file in this directory.
;; Upto point No. 3. 'Initializing 10 objects'
;; everything has gone as expected...

? (io "test.midi" :versions true)
 > Error: Not initializations for MIDI-FILE-STREAM: (:VERSIONS T).
 > While executing: #<STANDARD-METHOD INSURE-IO (EVENT-STREAM)>
 > Type :POP to abort.
Type :? for other options.
1 > :POP

;; What now ? Can CM visit the file properly ?
;; Is CM insure of what stream-type .midi represents ?
;; At least make sure the path to file is correct:

? (cd)
#P"/Users/myuserdir/"
? (cd "/private/tmp/")
#P"/private/tmp/"
? (io "/private/tmp/test.midi" :versions true)
 > Error: Not initializations for MIDI-FILE-STREAM: (:VERSIONS T).
 > While executing: #<STANDARD-METHOD INSURE-IO (STRING)>
 > Type :POP to abort.
Type :? for other options.
1 > :POP

;; Giving up ! Not the first time ...

? (quit)
