Escape From Script In Use Blocking?

Sometimes a hard coded breakpoint command works. But it's easier to click 
the Messages button in the toolbar before going to the card so that no 
messages are sent at all.

Note that in LC 9 dp6 I've had occasional lockups when using the Messages 
button so save the stack first. The team couldn't reproduce it so there's 
no fix yet, and I can't find a reliable recipe.
