Hi Tom,

The 'trace' messages are internal messages and
functions used by the debugger -- so unless your name
is MisterX and you're writing a replacement script
editor, this probably isn't what you're looking for
;-)

If you want to interrupt a script in order to debug
it, either use the script editor to place a breakpoint
at the right line by clicking just to the left of it ;
or insert the command 'breakpoint' manually.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
