Anomalous Script behavior

Using LC 7.1 dp1

Part of a script sometimes doesn’t function—sometimes it works just fine. Sometimes it refuses to continue to execute the rest of a handler. This refusal will happen over and over until some point in my testing it starts working again beautifully.

It’s a group script with 35,655 characters. Is there a limit to the number of characters?

I put in breakpoints that are sometimes reached, sometimes not.

It’s a handler that is being called by callbacks in a player as the media plays, so it’s difficult to debug while the media is playing. So I put some code in to put data into a field when those lines of the script are reached. Then I can see the progression through the script in real time. When it’s not working properly, while the handler IS receiving the callback calls, that field stays empty.

Any ideas?
