I see. In fact, I have not investigated what happes if a PIL.zip is pushed into
a running PilBox. Might be unpredictable, depending on whether the new files
conflict with the (possibly running) old ones.

Therefore, I recommend to always stop PilBox, then start it by clicking a new

I saw this "not found" message (it is from the WebView component) occasionally.
The reason was usually that I started a new PilBox too quickly without the old
one having enough time to clean up and terminate.

BTW, you can find out the reason for a crash usually by starting new, going to
the REPL, and typing

   $ cat log-

"log" is the current logfile, and "log-" that of the last PilBox invocation.
The error message is in the above case often "Address already in use".

I won't think so, as this animation is driven by JavaScript (the '(+Click +Auto
+Button) in "demo/fields.l"), which stops as soon as the browser leaves the
