DP 12: empty dictionary.

This is slightly unpleasant; as I have a feeling that all the bits of 
LiveCode are so
interconnected that as soon as one sorts out one bug/problem/blip 
another one
seems to arise.

I have just found that the property inspector won't let me inspect groups;

mind you, to be fair, when I tried the same thing with DP 11 the whole 
GUI froze until I hit the escape key.

So: I decided to try to open the cardScript of my "Garuda" stack, and 
got a jolly
wheel that goes round and round and round, you are feeling sleepy, you 
think you are
a purple banana . . .

I created a blank stack with a bog-normal button and tried to see the 
scriptEditor via the
menuBar, and got a jolly wheel that goes round and round and round, you 
are feeling
sleepy, you think you are a purple banana . . .

Same again via the contextual menu . . .

So, obviously quite a few 'issues', which is the word that I have to 
now I have promised to be 'good' [don't believe that, 'cos you might just be

I hope that ALL at LiveCode will have suitably restorative Winter festivals
[Christmas, Pancha Ganapati, Yule, LiveCodeMass (Um; that's a thought), 
what-have-you; doesn't
really matter as long as they are all pointing in the same direction 
(sorry, folks, I don't do
sectarianism)] and not give a tuppenny @#$%^& about DP 12 until the 3rd 
of January at the earliest.

------------ Off Topic Homily Follows ----------------

However, I would urge any Muslims who happen to read this to reflect on 
the very simple fact that
a reading of both the Koran and the Hadith [sorry; I have only read 
sahih al-Bukhari and sahih al-Muslim]
point to the fact that Islam (along with Christianity, Judaism, and 
every other religion except,
possibly, Buddhism) has a thread of violence against unbelievers in 
them. This is not to denigrate
Islam; but it is to point out that it is time for Muslims to acknowledge 
that fact (as Christians and Jews
have already) and come to terms with it and reject it, and urge other 
Muslims to do the same.
All religions pass through bigotted, violent patches, but it is time for 
Islam to get over that patch; now.
