Panther problems

Actually, I think it is possibly not a bug. Not completely. Like I 
said, this did not happen to me until I did my first set of Builds AND 
when you look in the 'Open with' contextual menu you will notice that 
the list only contains those items that are builds. So.... this tells 
me that when I did the build I needed to change the codes - because 
right now they are acting like Revolution and as such are competing 
with revolution for the 'Open with' command.

1. I remember something like this happening in Supercard in 
OS9(Supercard projects were taking on the wrong icons when not built 
into a standalone). (I had to change either the creator code or was it 
the other code????)

2. The behavior of the OS however is a bit odd. When set to always open 
with it should stay and it does not.
( I don't see how that can be the fault 'bug' of Rev.)
