!! WARNING !! BEFORE LOADING A NEW PANEL INTO CTRLR, CLOSE THE OLD ONE(S).   Otherwise you a) risk to block the midi ports (MS Windows) and b) suffer from a bulk popup of +100 ‘info’ and file browser windows: if this happens, wait until it stops, close all popups, then close all panel instances in CTRLR (it’s a CTRLR bug with yet no solution)
