Funnily enough I bumped up against this on Monday when making this patch https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/pull/1301/files <https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/pull/1301/files> and filed this report http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=18118 <http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=18118>

As you can see I’m using Jeanne’s workaround here but really this needs some engine improvements which is why I filed the report to look into when we get a chance.

Cheers

Monte
