KNOWN PROBLEMS
==============

1. crashes when creating/destroying a window:
Gem relies on being able to establish one or more openGL contexts.
37
By default it creates 2 contexts on startup, which might lead to
38 39 40 41 42 43 44
unexpected behaviour (e.g. crashes when closing the Gem-window) on
some systems (depending on gfx-card/driver).
if this happens to you, please try setting the environment variable
"GEM_SINGLE_CONTEXT" to "1" before starting Pd/Gem.
e.g. start Pd/Gem with:
% GEM_SINGLE_CONTEXT=1 pd -path /usr/lib/pd/extra/Gem -lib Gem
