Re: Freshmeat editors made a mistake
The above comment should be completely ignored. I did not realize how quickly the freshmeat editors would be in responding to mistakes. They rock. I should have probably posted this earlier, but even important things slip my mind sometimes.
Freshmeat editors made a mistake
It wasn't 64k (as in 65536 or even 65535), it was 64 + k, where k was the number of documents open when PyPE was last closed. If there were 10 documents open when PyPE was last closed, then it would die when a total of more than 64 + 10 = 74 documents had been opened and closed.
Certainly I should have used a different variable, like say 'n', my mistake.
As you can see, this is much more of an issue in real life than the opening and closing of 65535 unique documents.
