I don't know what is going on.  I do see old error messages repeated at 
times.  I think they come up when error handling gets confused or has 
an error or the stack is blown.

I recently tried using the select tool by hand and got a flashing error 
window.  I don't know if that is a clue.

Maybe you can put in a try-catch and then look at the raw error 
parameter and see if it gives a clue.

Do you start it from the message box with the enter key?  Can you start 
it with a keystroke from the stack?

Just babbling Scott, hoping something might click.
