Maybe this will help with some of the v9 problems. This is happening on my
Win 10 VM.

I have a stack that makes the IDE go crazy if you open up the message box. A
slew of "can't find object" errors from a try/catch in my stack.  Yesterday
it was OK the day before yesterday IDE went crazy. No major if any changes.

I have some hints. After all settles down either of these 2 are left in the
message box.
1) send "ideInitialiseMessageBox" to stack "Message Box"
2) put the formattedHeight of field 1

The send(#1) has no result but when #2 is there it is actually executed with
the formattedheight of some field in the lower message box results area.

This is the executioncontexts of the try/catch in my code. Why I am getting
a resizestack message sent to my stack(last 2 lines) from the IDE when
opening the message box is beyond me. If the IDE was always sending
"resizestack"s to the developers stack then why is it a problem now? Default
stack behavior change? Behaviors getting lost/corrupted?

Default Stack==>stack "Message Box"
Stack name==>stack "Message Box"
Card name==> card "Single Line"
