I used to have an example, I struggled with the problem until I figured out 
the reason, and then I modified the script to work around it. It actually 
didn't happen in the IDE, only on Android. (I didn't test on iOS.) Now I 
can't remember what the original problem script was. But I'll see if I can 
reproduce it.
