Thanks Alex for your quick response.

I'll try with 9.6.1 on Mac.  The only other difference between us is that
my sockets are interacting with a process outside of LC. But I can't see
why that would make a difference (particularly once I've closed all
sockets, I wouldn't expect sockets to interfere with scripts being changed).
