Right, but it only warns on the second redundant #/init calland  
subsequently. The first time #/init is called on the result of  
objc:make-objc-instance there's no error logged to console.

In reply to Neil, If I remove the (redundant) #/init call, I see what  
you see - If I leave the first window open it becomes unresponsive to  
mouse clicks. I'm pretty sure this is because your "sprite" is a  
dynamic variable. You probably want to do something like the attached  
which gives each new window its own sprite rather than using a single  
sprite defined with defparameter. I had forgotten I refactored your  
code this way earlier today when I mentioned this issue just now.

warmest regards,
