I think I tried what you said. And afterward things are better.
In the message box I put
set the cursor to watch
set the cursor to arrow
I went back to the editor and it was working right. Maybe I did something else, so I’ll have to see if this routine keeps working when this comes up. It is easy to become superstitious.
Now what I want is a recipe to make this happen so I can report it and run more tests on the workaround. If it is a workaround.
