I'm not sure you expect the IDE to *know* that you didn't intend call the
message box versus making a script error. Sure, the context could be gauged
to some extent, but perhaps you *did* intend to call the message box and
simply made a contextual script error in the remainder of your code.
Chalk it up to a learning experience. In much the same way that one has to
the same result as "answer" in X-talk.
