I'm pretty sure that the problem with adding new objects is a frame 
focus problem. If you first click in the toolbar frame and then click

of the left frame object to complete (including reload of the toolbar 
frame) before clicking plus. On slow machines, this can be quite an 

The error message you're getting is not related and can be resolved by 
editing line 196 of mapserv_40.xml in your maplab/config directory so 
that the first character in the value string is ' |' (the unix pipe 
VALUE="POINT|LINE...  should be changed to VALUE="|POINT|LINE...

This will be fixed the next time there is a bug fix release. 
Unfortunately, that may not be soon.
