It says so in the comments:

           * itself, so we have to retain it once more.

Alex M. and I discussed this and it looks highly suspect.   I believe that
might cause a memory leak.  Also, I beleive that it will promote writing of
sloppy code since the developer will be able to have code which works on
GNUstep, but might fail on MOSX.

I am going to remove the code which does the extra retain, unless someone comes
up with a very convincing defense for leaving it in.

Could you please expalin in more detail, what the possible problem here is? From this mail it just looks like trying to mimik a bug of MacOSX, which surely is not worthwhile and probably not what you intend to achive. As this is a rather old line of code, I would not be to surprised to learn that it is now obsolete. But I would like to understand it first.
