wrong numbers of args for addmetadata

Recently I got the following message everytime I start MaxMSP 5.1.7 on OS X.5.8:

“wrong number of args for addmetadata”

Is that harmless ?

As replied on Jamoma list, there is a typo in Jamoma init file. This is fixed for next release.

In the mean time, you can just delete the file “Jamoma-init.txt” placed in “Cycling 74/init” folder. Sorry for the trouble.
