    chanpref.itcl module bug?

    Thirded! That's certainly saved a huge amount of hunting around for patches.

    Quick question for those who have faster PCs than my 5-year old thing.

    True. And it is cosmetic as you say. Most of us UK-ers still use TW1.9.4 Final anyway, as TWP uses more resources and doesn't add much that we can use on our series ones.
