Anomalous Script behavior

Hi Peter,

Do you see a similar thing in 6.7?

The reason I ask is that if the problem is only occurring in an a handler being invoked by the engine as part of callbacks set by the callback property on a player it could be something to do with that specific case.

The player implementation on Mac changed completely from 6.7 onwards...

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.
