[Xotcl] Problem with slots and moving objects

  Dear Neil,

many thanks for the (most likely condensed) example.
The bug was that the traces from initcmd were handled twice
by copy/move, one time correctly, the other time not
(Stefan's patch from 2'oclock fixes the second copy and
removes the duplicates later, but removes too many

See below for a patch against xotcl 1.6.6.
We'll do some more testing, but this or a similar patch
will go into the next releases (as well the 2.0 branch).

For now, you might get the fixed version from:
    git clone git://alice.wu-wien.ac.at/xotcl

best regards
