I didn't do anything specifically to fix your bug, so I guess that's  
up to you. The problem with memory-related bugs is that they are  
difficult to reproduce, and a given bug will sometimes manifest  
itself in different ways.

No, there's nothing wrong. There are only minor differences between  
FOX versions 1.6.20 and 1.6.21, and none of those differences will  
affect the behavior of FXRuby, so there was simply no point in  
updating the version of FOX used for this build of FXRuby. (See the  
FOX News page for more information about what changed in version
