I don't have a good reason for calling tsNetInit (I wanted to use tsNet 
features, looked in the dictionary, saw that it had an "initialization" 
handler - so I used it :-)

Removing that call means I get further - but I still get this 
"anonymous" 'Execution error' dialog box with no info in it  - I think 
very time I call "tsNetPost".

I guess the *real* question is not about tsNet - it is what info 
*should* I get when some failure happens.
What have I done wrong to make this error dialog be empty of any useful 
content ?
And then maybe what diagnostic info can I get about included libraries, 
or these failures ?
