Problems creating a field in LC8 DP16

I deleted the four lines (*) of your function (see citation below)
and inserted instead the following 4 lines, in that order, at end of it.

  set fixedLineHeight of fld tName to true
  set textSize of fld tName to 12
  set textHeight of fld tName to 20
  return (0,0,the formattedWidth of fld tName, \
             the formattedHeight of fld tName)

because
1. the default setting of fixedLineHeight may have changed?
2. why use possible update bugs of "rect" if not needed?

Works fine here.
