it's possible that some bugs in PkgInfo were fixed since 1.0d2 (current
version available from my web page is 1.0g2) -- though if you have other
packages installed that patch the action menu (incorrectly), that might
cause a conflict like -48221.

if you have Newt's Cape, you can try the pkginfo.htm example (it saves
package info to Notes; also lets you rename a package)

NewtDevEnv, Newt's Cape, Sloup, Crypto,...
