How did you fix the reference to the python22 dll? Using the version
Also, I don't see the garbling here but I haven't tried Python23
either, maybe it is related. It would be a great help if you could edit
Console.py up at the top and change the 0 in the logging code to a 1
and run it.
# primitive debug printing that won't interfere with the screen
if 0: <--- change this to 1
fp = open('debug.txt', 'w')
print >>fp, s
Then run it and look at the resulting debug.txt file. It should show
the characters that got sent in.
