...now this is weird: i upgraded a non-european mac to Lion with language english and on launching Kairon 3.6 only the menubar was seen. The new window command does not work, but i can open an existing file with File>open...
This then shows the regular window without the drawer on its right. To display the drawer one has to type command-d twice (which means to first hide the hidden drawer and then show it "again")... after this little procedure all is fine again, too... except that this has to be performed on every new launch.
so i tried to figure out where this might come from and set the language to german instead of english... and what is now most weird of all: then it worked like on my mac, too.
so i tried it the other way round: also the european mac does not open window and drawer if set to english... i remember an issue with Korean Language, too, even on 10.6...
further investigation shows that if german is on top of english and any other language on top of german, any other language works. if english is on top of german, then only the trick with file>open (and pressing command-d twice) works.
