compiler not catching bad exit within routine

Another thing to try that helped me more than once is to copy/paste the script (the ENTIRE script not just the handlers) into a text file formatted for Text Only then copy/paste it back into your script replacing what is there. I think it has something to do with the unicode text thingummy.

You define a handler "mkNwDnaRec" but your exit statement refers to
"makeNewDnaRec" ...


That should throw any error on script save--but it doesn't.

The rest of the script compiles, but this routine quietly doesn't.
