Every version AFAIK... drag a button to a card, open the script (see the
mouseUP handler), select it all, hit enter twice to apply and close the
script, then reopen it - voila: another mouseup handler! (of course this is
just the template... see below)

Which actually provides another minor confusion - open a script - see a
handler, but it doesn't block the message.

Well a while ago (Rev 2.2?) it actually saved the script template that was
inserted if you opened a script and just hit enter to dismiss the script; I
guess I didn't realize this had been fixed.

It's just a bit unnerving to remove something and have it come back, even if
you *know* it really isn't there... I vote for the preference that keeps
this stuff out if we want it out.
