using 1.0.1 / osx 10.5
1) make a new sketch, name it "boolean" hit run
2) make new sketch, name it PImage, try to load in image, hit run

in both cases you get difficult to debug errors.

That's just not something I can fix: there's not really a good stopping
point on how we police the names of sketches. I would hope that common
sense would say that you shouldn't make a class named PImage that uses a
built-in class named PImage.

i could add a list to Sketch.checkName, if you'll accept it :) it has happened a few times in
class. Introduce a new type and someone names the sketch after that type.

related bug, one can overwrite the libraries or tools folder. Someone could easily not know that
is a reserved directory and make a new sketch with one of those names.

Hmm. I think you should reopen this. It doesn't sound unfixable.
This bug is now being tracked here.
