Phil - thanks for the suggestion but I just tried it and no-can-do. For
some reason, and this is a Mac-only behavior, when I mouseDown on the
desktop I can't see any messages at all which are sent to Livecode. The
suspend message is sent if I mouseDown on another stack, but not on a
file on the desktop or the desktop itself.
Let me know if anything else comes to mind.
