Wow, Malcolm, you're fast!  No, no error messages.

Just the one portion of the display, the rest of the app loads fine. 
It's supposed to have two equal-sized "windowettes" side by side with
directory information, with two buttons in between with < and > arrows
to add and subtract directories from the backup set.  The system file
windowette doesn't render, but if I click the add button a blank
spaceholder seems to be added to the backup set windowette.

What info do you need next?
