i really tried to use siox this weekend.  it is so confusing, i have no
idea what to expect from it or if what happened to me was a bug.

the default is foreground extraction.  i wanted it to background extract
and toggled this tool option.  it toggled itself back to foreground and
it also could not see an honest line that was in the image.  a dark
brown/gray area that ended in a very straight line before a very bright
(luminescent even) area started (which was the background i wanted to

it would not stay toggled and it seemed to be blind to the colors no
matter what values i gave it.  it only selected what i selected which, i
could have used quickmask for and it would have been a lot less toggling
and such.

is the tool broken or are my expectations all wrong?

i am honestly way to baffled to go to bugzilla with this even.

it would be one heck of a status bar message to explain how to use this

also, the tooltips are popping up some freaking huge tool tips.  it is
the long help that is in the script-fu?  i think it was some of the
third party scripts i have installed that were doing this -- i did not
find it at all helpful.

is GIMP showing the help blurb or the about blurb from the scripts?
