That's a very inventive fix, and I'm glad you found a way to address the 
problem. For the benefit of anyone who may see this and be deterred from 
considering Livecode under Linux, I don't have this issue running 4.5.3 
and higher on my system running Linux. (4.5.3 is the earliest version of 
Livecode I have installed currently.)
