Aloha, Jerry:

more feed back.. this problem arose today again, open stack A call  
"transcriber.rev" close... (destroy stack set to true)  try to open a  
different stack with the same name... still in memory, purge loop  
started happening again..

I had actually previously completed deleted Object Gadget... it is  
not even in the gadgets folder now  as of two weeks ago..

I had to disable Constellation completely to continue work.. :- 
(  (because it is so useful...)
