I've added the missing constant or method to the error messages now - that 
should have been done a while ago.

This incorrect line:
color_group.setColor( ColorGroup::MyMissingConst, blue )

Gives this error:
splitter.rb:16:in `const_missing': unresolved constant reference 
MyMissingConst (ArgumentError)

Not sure about this without example code. Should 'button' and 'action' be 
instance variables '@button' and '@action' - are they initialised in some 
parts of the code, but not in others?

It might be possible to trap this error - but could you post some example
