Hi Jacque,

This sounds like a typical memory shortage problem. I'd ask the user  
about memory, free disk space, and the amount of icons in the lower  
right corner, if this is on a PC.

Additionally, the screen may stop being redrawn if there is a repeat  
loop running with messages or if a wait command has been issued with  

You can probably easily work around the problem by using a repeat  
loop and setting the loc of the object to the mouseloc. This way, the  
two problems mentioned above will not occur.
