I've been using GTK3 based gretl for years - without any problems.
Recently, I decided to move from the very old X11 graphics to Wayland
and I encountered the following two problems:
1. Drag-and-drop actions don't work (neither for scripts nor data).
2. Clipboard is one-directional: I can copy raw text from the operating
system to gretl, but I cannot copy enything from gretl to operating
system (scripts, results).
I checked GTK2 and everything is ok. I'm using current git version.
which function may produce an error: "bundle_print_function: bundle name
is empty string"? I tried to find it in all source tree but I can't
figure out in which file it is coded.
I'm noticing that the search text box in the function package window
apparently only looks at the packages' names, not at the author names
nor at the summaries. This is not obvious, and also --IMHO-- not optimal.
due to a recent discussion in the user list
Allin and I have begun coding a slight modification to the --robust option
to ols that enables the usage of that option with "gappy" time series
A few minutes ago, I pushed a commit to the git master branch that makes
the new behaviour conditional on the existence of an environment variable
named "HAC_ALLOW_MISSING". This is a technique we've been using quite
often to test new things.
In fact, maybe _too_ often. The combined powers of grep and sed allowed me
to compile a list of all the environment variables that play a role of
some kind; although some are perfectly legitimate (eg HOME, LANG), some
are clearly there because of experiments we did in the past. I guess we
ought to clean up at least some of them.
Of course, Allin and I could see to this without bothering the community,
but this may be a good opportunity for aspiring developers to take a peek
at the source code and see what's in there, so ideas and contributions
from the community are very welcome.

Thanks for checking, Peter. When I restart gretl, first I don't get a
crash on entering "pkg install DP.gfn", either. However, when I have
both the local package listing window and the window with the server
listing open, then typing the command leads to a reproducible crash.
with gretl 2022c (don't know about other versions) I cannot get the
package "DP" by Uriel Rodríguez Ramírez to show up in the package list
window for the local machine. It is shown in the window for the packages
on the server, and "include DP.gfn" also works OK (and says that the
package lives in $dotdir/functions/ alright).
Asking gretl to install the package via the GUI didn't change anything,
and I just tried on the console "pkg install DP.gfn" which led to gretl
crashing (on Windows 10) -- OK, apparently this together with the .gfn
extension is the wrong command format, so this is a separate issue.
'pkg install DP' on the console returns a success message, but in the
package list window there's still no DP.
