I've seen the "empty error dialog" on password protected stacks.

Subject: Empty error dialogs

Some users are getting empty script error dialogs in a standalone. The
errors are infrequent, sporadic, always in different places in the app, not
repeatable. When they happen, the user can repeat their last action and it
works without error. We get these reports because the standalone has error
reporting turned on.

An example:

Object: field 'XXX' of card 'YYY' of stack 'ZZZ'


Line Num:


The identified object and card is always different. I should mention that
the current desktop app was built in a much older version of LC.

I assume the lack of reference info is because the script couldn't compile,
but then why only sometimes and never on a second try? I also assumed the
error(s) were in a LC library, mostly because if it were my own scripts I'd
think there would be more information.

This is mostly a curiosity question since no real harm is done to the user
