thanks, but right now i cant go back to mc as i just upgraded to a mac  
pro and leopard so forced lepoard upgrade on the g4 laptop, so no os9  
right now. pc also died and windoz is not set up on the new mac yet.  
in the past i had stripped out the offending window resources for the  
message, ask and answer with some combo of rev versions, but ive tried  
several attempts at different combos and the message box keeps coming  
up as an error that its still there (even though the application  
browser does not show it there...

frustrating since this messes up the message box to try and poke at  
things. Ill have to sit down when i have time and do some more  
systematic tries at this.
