Hi Kee,

This changed when the graphics engine was made more efficient (I  
think). Try this:

repeat with w = 1 to 1000
  repeat with x = 1 to 1000
    repeat with y = 1 to 1000
      repeat with z = 1 to 1000 with messages
        put "A" && w && x && y && z into field "status"
	wait 0 millisec with messages
      end repeat
    end repeat
  end repeat
end repeat
put "A done" into field "status"

I don't think it is necessary to change all repeat loops by adding  
"with messages", but if this doesn't work you might try that as well.
