Heads up: commas in file paths

RR has just verified an issue, introduced in version 3.5, where commas 
in file paths interfere with scripts and/or the script editor. On Mac OS 
X, attempting to open a script editor in a stack that has commas in its 
file path will result in the spinning pizza of death and requires a 
force-quit (and therefore potential data loss.) On Windows, the script 
editor may open but will ignore any breakpoints set by either the dot 
method or by inserting the work "breakpoint" into the script.

They are working on a fix, but if you are experiencing unexplained 
hangs, crashes, or an inability to use the script editor normally, check 
for and remove any commas in your stack paths.
