Yes, I'm using standard IDE script editor.
The added comment persists, both through "apply - close - reopen" and
"apply - save stack - close editor - reopen", and to stack and card scripts.

Have to ask
- do you have any plugins that might use sockets ?
- I'm using Indy version - let me know if you're on Community /
Business and I can try that too
I think :-)
- do you, or have you, used other editors / debuggers that might
affect this ?
- do you, or have you, used remote debugging ?
That's all the straws I can think of for now.
