LC 6.7.8 won't load

Thanks Mark.

I found the culprit that caused the 6.7.8 issue - a tiny little plugin I
write that loads at startup, although I'm not sure why the coding error in
it should cause LC to silently quit or why it didn't have the same effect
in other LC versions.

I have separate prefs locations for 7 and pre-7.  Should I have a separate
one for 8?
