The problem is with Xdialog. It is working, but apparently outputting complaints on stderr. The default is for Xdialog to output menu-elections on stderr also, hence chaos. Xdialog should always be used with the "--stdout" option, which is what I have now put into the script in Puppy Podcast Grabber (and removed all of the "2>&1").
Note, I am testing in Precise Puppy 5.5, and Xdialog does not output any complaints on stderr, so I am going by what has been reported in the Forum.
I have bumped the PET from version 1.1 to 1.2 (19K):
The fix will also be in upcoming Service Packs. The Service Pack for Wary/Racy 5.5 is coming very soon.
You guys who have this problem with Puppy Podcast Grabber, would you mind giving this PET a spin? Let me know if it does indeed fix the problem.
