Hi, Matti:

  I recall seeing this problem before, but at the time I thought it had
to do with an outdated Guile. Your version is correct, so I'm not sure
why you're having this problem. However, one way out is to comment out
the reference to fmv.scm. That file is for an FM violin, so unless you
really need that function you can safely delete references to it.

  I think Bill Schottstaedt reads this list, hopefully he'll comment on
this matter too.

  Btw, their is a possible collision going on: I have a new-effects.scm
in $HOME/my_scm/ and Bill has one in $HOME/snd-5/. I defer to his
version so you can rename mine to new-effects.scm.old or something
similar so it doesn't get loaded and run into Bill's file.

  Please let me know how you fare, I'll help you as much as I'm able...

Best regards,

== Dave Phillips
