Will do.

The error messages made a lot of sense once I figured them out, so
they must have made sense to whoever originally implemented them.
They mostly had to do with the conventions of Objective-C and Cocoa
Touch memory management.

I was really flummoxed by the advice that a lot of methods returned
objects that had retain counts of  zero.  What that really meant was
that their retain counts were presently one, but at a later time they
would be autoreleased.  I was not supposed to release them myself.

These messages were in Xcode 4.0.2 and Xcode 4.1 while I was
developing an iOS App.  Should I file my bug reports at
http://bugreport.apple.com/ or in CLangs Bugzilla?
