I've discovered that various components have issues with encoding into .nib files from GNUstep. They are:

  • NSPopUpButton -- Causes an exception in the verificatio methods when trying to load into IB. The problem cited there is that it is trying to find the parent for an orphan menu. This should provide a clue to what's happening.
  • NSSlider -- is not archiving properly
  • NSButton -- Radio buttons are not archiving properly.
  • NSTableHeader -- Appears to cause an infinite loop.
  • NSMatrix -- Causes "attempt to insert nil into objects(0)" error.
  • Main menu doesn't appear to be set in nib file. (this may be corrected)

This is an AppKit issue, since the encoding are implemented there. Some classes encode perfectly and other don't. I need to do some testing to determine which ones need work.
