No, I didn't say that and there is no reason to assume such a conflict, since icon.library has no relationship to iffparse.library.

Reading about Foul's problem I just remembered that there was a bug report recently for a library v42.x and thought it was dos.library, which indeed has a meaning for icon.library, but then I checked it and realized that the bug report was concerning iffparse.library in this thread:

This may have been noticed and reported already by someone somewhere in these 94 pages, but anyway V46.4.451 has a bug here when using "show all files". When dragging icons around there is normally the icon's imagery attached to the pointer. However if it is not a real icon this doesn't happen, and thus there is no way to tell visually that you are dragging anything.

Marqueeing several such icons and dragging them, you will get the icon imagery rendered for all the icons except the one you are actually using as a handle.

Hi Minuous,

this a a known problem that on some systems the WB mask for dragging icons and my ghosting mask are both together removing all even and all odd pixels, so that nothing is left to appear on the screen.

But there is a command called InvertGhostingMask in my Aminet package to fix this issue.

It turns out that InvertGhostingMask was causing the issue. I have removed it from user-startup and icon dragging is fine now.

Peter : do you have an archive with all the versions of your icon.library ?
It's for preservation and sharing by uploading to my site...

Yes, I still have stored most of my older library versions and hundreds of internal subversions as executables and as source code, but some of them got lost a few years ago on one of my dead old harddisks. The disk surfaces and the data on it are still ok, but the drive doesn't want to start anymore.

And no, I don't want to make these older versions public, since I prefer to spread only the latest version in order to get rid of all older buggy installations as soon as possible. That's why I would like to ask you to remove all older libraries from your collection.
