I'll file that, but it just got odder

When the development environment is detected, a couple of scripts fire to
make sure that I don't overwrite yesterday's work, and open a few scripts
to edit.

All of my regular stacks (i.e., the ones that will ship, not my dev tools)
share a behavior (src_mcp).

I deleted my live code prefs before starting this morning for good measure.

After everything settles, I search for the routine I want (ckVersDat) from
the find control below the script.

When I then click into the script window, the closeField handler from
src_mcp fires.

src_mcp is *not* set as a library stack although it is prolific.
