Hi all,

The following patch works perfectly thru command line, but miniaudicle  
creates an empty file.

SinOsc s => WvOut file => blackhole;
"mini.wav" => file.wavFilename;
5::second => now;

I normally use chuck on the command line, but while teaching my  
students preferred to use miniaudicle. Then I found out miniaudicle  
was quite unstable, much less efficient than chuck and even patches  
that would work via command line wouldn't in miniaudicle. Sorry I  
can't remember the exact cases, but I will report back whenever I find/ 
remember one.
One message it bugs me from miniaudicle is that when started up it  
often says that the VM appears to be hanging. And since I moved to  
Leopard, that is mac os 10.5, it always says so (see attached png file)
