Just a heads up to anyone else out there who may be having VERY hard to
track down crashes in LC 9.x.x.
The following functions: formattedRect, formattedLeft, formattedWidth
when operating on chunk expressions (i.e. char X to Y of field Z) can
cause an engine crash for certain field content.
This is present in all versions of LC 9.x.x (actual back to some version
The issue is when the chuck contains tab characters.
FYI: formattedTop and formattedHeight of chunks still work.
