Comment on editing front scripts

Debugging front scripts that contain events like (mouseMove, mouseUp, 
mouseDown...), is impossible in Rev.  Rev's script editor changes size 
erratically and buttons on the editor move to unknown places.  So I 
switched to my trusty copy of MC to work on them.  Dawg gone of MC did 
not give it the best try to work on them.  For the most part, editing 
was ok.  Then I realized that variables are still updating live as your 
mouse moves across your app to get to the script editor.  Thus things 
start falling apart.

Then it dawned on me to remove the front script just before the 
breakpoint line.  This simple solution took me a few hours to realize.  
Thought others might benefit from my pain.
