You need to make one more change the handler the reset button calls: instead
of moving the field off screen (which will cause that position to be saved)
you need to run revGoToFramePaused myAnim,1 to move the animation back to
the start without saving a change to the frame.  This will be included in
the next revision of the tutorials.
