Am I missing something really basic here? If I drag my new version 5.0.2 to the trash,  which leaves 4.6.4 to start up, and do the same thing, the tool switches to browse tool as it should. There are other startup issues suddenly going on in 5.0.2 which I don't understand.

This also happens here in Linux. In 5.0, Livecode opens, the stack 
appears and both parts of this script work. In 5.0.2 the stack is 
opening almost instantly and well before the Livecode toolbar appears. 
It beeps but does not switch to the browse tool. It would seem that 
Livecode is attempting to run the script before it's fully ready.
