Tiger breaks hyperCard?

If you are running Hypercard on the startup volume, it runs fine  
until you try to edit a script. That does not work.

If you are running externals in Hypercard, no clue whether they still  
function or not, I imagine they do, mostly.

If you want to edit scripts in Hypercard just create a small disk  
image and plop Hypercard and the home stack into that virtual disk.  
Then you can edit scripts just fine running that copy of Hypercard.

The offending code appears to me to be the script editor that is  
separate code inside Hypercard.

The Apple tech support folks at WWDC had the following response when  
I mentioned the problem "Hypercard is not supported, OS9 is not  
supported, we cannot help you."
