Hi Ken.  Thanks, however, upon trying this, the d**n thing still won't 
die.  I think I shall have to strip all (mainly) development functions 
out of the main stack/splash screen and start again with the stand alone.

Let you know how things turn out with this evening's coding.  So close, 
so far, so frustrating.

Kindest regards to you and the list.
