    I'm having issues with the regen command. Im using bukkits latest dev build 1.2.3 R0.2 and with the dev version of worldedit the regen command changes how the area should look. For example if I regen an area some trees may appear, when I type regen again the position of the trees changes, or half the trees leaves dissapear. When I use the version of WorldEdit designed for 1.1 R3 The majority of the commands I get an error if my selection is large.

    loader (instance of org/bukkit/plugin/java/PluginClassLoader) previously initiated loading for a different type with name "com/sk89q/worldedit/LocalPlayer"

    and none of the commands work, please if someone could help this is urgent, as i need world edit to use world guard etc

    Using the latest dev builds of worldedit and worldguard, everything seems to work however i have a big problem. I'm trying to give my ops access to all the commands so they can protect land for players. I use essentials, and I have in globalgroups:

    - worldedit.* - worldguard.*

    My assumption is this should give them all commands. Wand works (it says select with left and right click), but doesn't actually select anything nor give a wooden axe. However, These commands work for me (owner). Any suggestions?

    This clown should be banned from Bukkit Dev threads. We don't need this kind of attitude here.
