what exactly happens when you do it from the gui? i don't quite understand now cause you say it works in the console, but when you double click the rpm it doesn't....seems weird, but its always possible that you did in fact screw something up...anyways if there is more details rather than "it doesn't work in the gui" please do tell. like anything
