Setting script in object not working...

Hi Glen,
I guess I'm referring to storing the script of the image, not the image
itself.  I'm wondering if setting the script of an object invokes a save,
same for the tooltip, because you can't save data in a currently executing
program.  One thing for sure is that the scripts you set would not be there
in any following executions of the standalone.

All this is predicated on the standalone being one self-contained stack
file and not a splash stack that loads the real application stack at run
time.

Somewhat stabbing in the dark though....
