Thank you for your reply Mark, it’s good to know the teams perspective on these things.

Unfortunately, finding a reproducible set of steps isn’t proving easy, I’m currently having problems with the Message Box and Project Browser (Bug: http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17048 ), where lengthy error messages appear in the MB and the PB suddenly becomes empty.

Another problem that I can’t find a recipe for, is the ‘tree link lines’ in the PB don’t always match up, closing and re-opening the PB seems to fix the issue. Next time I see it I’ll try to be more aware of the steps. I’ll certainly report it if I can find the recipe.

Another occasional problem, closing a stack using ‘Close and Remove From Memory’ may close the stack and remove it's entry in the PB, but by closing and re-opening the PB shows it's entry in the PB once again, even when the ‘destroyStack’ & ‘'destroyWindow’ are checked and ‘cantDelete’, ‘cantModify’ and ‘cantAbort’ are unchecked. I’ll do some more testing to see if I can nail this one down, but I have a feeling it’s closely related to the bug# 17048.

Regards,

Paul
