Command Option

If you click the Messages button in the toolbar twice it usually 
fixes the problem with the command-option thing. I'm pretty sure it 
was Kevin Miller who gave me that workaround. It seems that the 
problem can be reliably triggered if you cancel all messages in a 
script and sometimes if you have to interrupt a script with 
command-full stop (command-period for Americans).

After all this time I am surprised that this problem (bad bug, in my 
opinion) has not been fixed. In fact, early in the development of Rev 
I argued on the list that any command involving only modifier keys 
and a vague action like "hover" is dumb. Much better to have 
something definite like command-option click in my opinion.
