Windows 10 script editor problem

The script editor in v7 also seems to suffer from display issues.  Once
I've ruled out blendLevel and position, the only way I've been able to get
it to reappear is issue "close stack <script editor window name>" from the
message box, sometimes several times, and verify that it has closed in the
list of open windows.  But after a long LC session (I know "long" is
relative) even this doesn't work and I have to restart LC.  Sorry I can't
offer a better option.
