You'd think so, wouldn't you???!!! If *only* that really were the
case!!!!! If that were so I wouldn't have just wasted the best part
of 2 days pulling my hair out!
If you'd like to know more read the topic "Re:Weirdness Passing
Messages" especially the post from Richard Gaskin. Also read
"Terrible RunRev Bug? - Was Weirdness Passing Messages".
put <something> into me does NOT work 100% of the time.
I have found something that *appears* to work, but I would like to
know if it is 100% guaranteed to work before I change gods knows how
many scripts to use: set the text of the long name of me to "XXXXX".
I just don't want to do this work and then find out it only works
"sometimes" as is the case with put <something> into me!
All the Best
