Two issues here:

1. write  String->tentative:tent_chg  instead of just  String->tent_chg
    (this is wrong in the manual, sorry)

2. you can only suspend on the tent_chg condition when the variable
    already has a tentative value.  So you have to call tent_set/2 before.

And a third recommendation: don't use 1 as the suspension priority
(it is the highest priority, and reserved for debugging purposes).
Use 0 for default, or 2 and higher.


Cheers,
Joachim
