Weird script behavior

Did you turn on "strict compilation mode" in the prefs by mistake?

Subject: Weird script behavior


I've started to experience some weird stuff in the script editor.

Using LC 5.0

1. Adding a breakpoint shows a grey dot with a red outline instead of the
fully red dot and running scripts don't stop at that point. If I turn on
"Script debug mode" it works, but I haven't had to do that before.

2. Editing a script makes "put" show as an error with this kind of
button "Go To Stack": compilation error at line 2 (Chunk: can't create a
variable with that name (explicitVariables?)) near "maxH", char 12

Where I'm doing just:
	put 676 into maxH

Do I need to reinstall?
