Hi John,

Probably, you are using a slightly older version of Revolution. A nice  
addition to the Scrabble stack would have been a version check to see  
if private handlers are supported. You did the right thing, changing  
the private handlers into "public" (or should I say generic?) ones.

Best regards,
