Possible data grid bug?

Bob,

Thanks for the reply. I am doing all those things [properly]. I'm triple
checking my code to make sure, but it's not that complex:

from card A:

   - dispatch "msg" to grp "dg" of cd "b" with arguments


group DG:

   - addData tData


DG behavior script:

   - Many uses of "of me" - as to be expected


Like I said, if I go to card B before the dispatch, everything is fine. If I
do the dispatch from card A then the data is added, but many exceptions are
thrown (not in fillInData or layoutControl).

Something unique that I do is each row of the datagrid on FillInData will do
a "load URL with callback". Perhaps that callback is causing issues?

Thanks again for the reply.

Jeff M.
