$1,000 Bounty For LiveCode Bug 20240

I Could make it happen every time if i went up and down QUICKLY - but it
was easier to reproduce  if the mouse went out of the script editor bounds
and into the "chrome/bars" etc with or without the clockwise circular
mouse movement that Panos suggested.

Now the fact that we can reproduce it as a "recipe" only if we pretend to
have the equivalent of somebody with 50,000V through their bodies as they
are clicking around means
to me that it's not exactly the same - but it suggests some sort of timing
error - missing an instruction or event that updates the cursor position
and is more pronounced if the mouse goes out of the script editor boundaries
