[Openmcl-devel] Modal dialog problems with CCL 1.9 32/64 on Mountain Lion

I checked in a change to the trunk a few days ago; GUI:EXECUTE-IN-GUI and friends
are supposed to now use #/performSelectorOnMainThread:withObject:waitUntilDone:
instead of libdispatch, and that seems to be at least a large part of the problem.

If people who've experienced problems find that those problems persist after
updating to this version, we'll at least know that that isn't all of the problem.

This pattern is reliable and repeatable - if I call the loop again, the first time through the empty directories issue is present again; on subsequent iterations the directory is populated.

The gui:execute-in-gui version will not show quick-look previews in column view in either the 32-bit or 64-bit IDE - the field where the preview should be shows the spinning (non)progress indicator instead of the file's quick-look preview. This is true on all iterations, not just the first when the directory is not populated. The gui:execute-in-gui version *does* show previews in Cover Flow view, just not in Column view. The other (#/performSelectorOnMainThread) version reliably shows quick-look previews in both Column view and Cover Flow view in both the 32 and 64 bit IDEs.
