Well, it _is_ very starnge. According to the first statement above, you
must be leaving the main stack (splash) on the screen all the time.
That's extremely unusual. Normally, the splash remains on screen only
while it initializes things (globals, prefs, etc.), then you remove it
by hiding or changing its location.
Try Richard's idea of leaving the main stack offscreen to process any
startup errors, like a memory check, and, instead, use a substack as
the splash/init window.
If you actually do send the splash off screen somewhere, you can expect
it to remain there until you change it, of course. in the IDE it's
likely to always op[en in a default condition. because the engine is in
the IDE, not the main stack file.
