Not to cast aspersions on anyone's work, but there is an alternate script editor that misbehaved in a similar way when switching between the native editor and the alternate one. That has been ironed out some time ago, but for the sake of historical accuracy... well... there you go.

> May or may not be related, but the issue Mark Wieder described last night is also specific to the script editor. Rather than a crasher, his issue was mysterious in a different way,:scripts being saved into objects other than the ones they came from. That's something I've never seen in any script editor in our community before, and having written a couple I can't even imagine how that happens.
