I don't think it's anything to do with that; I had the same experience with a 
stack that was converted from HyperCard several years ago, probably with Rev 
2.1, and has been through a few versions of Rev since.  It's a Rev stack, 
which happens to have it's origins in a HyperCard stack; but something breaks 
in Rev 3.0 when attempting to edit the scripts.

Sivakatirswami - could you try setting the hcAddressing to false?  I don't 
know that it's that, but it would be worth ruling it out.

Is this better than SheepShaver, which is what I used when I first moved to an 
Intel Mac to look at legacy classic stuff, including HyperCard?  SheepShaver 
runs MacOS 9.something, supports colour, ethernet etc...
