[MacRuby-devel] My class's initialize not called

So that confirms my suspicion. It's not so much a MacRuby thing as a Cocoa thing. I just don't see how to set an initial state in a class that's instantiated when a nib is loaded. I don't do the alloc.initWithWhatever. On the previous subject though, adding super/self does not cause the initialize method to be called. Hmmmmmm...
