I think I tried that Mark and in this case, got nothing back.  It's as if
the engine starts to execute the set command and never returns to the
script so the catch construct is never reached.  I can't remember if I
tried setting the global you mentioned that causes debug to step through
the IDE code but I did try it in another circumstance that had the same
symptoms and simply setting that global made the problem go away!
