Thanks for confirming that Bernd.

Closing that corrupted gradient editor via the window decoration control rather than the inaccessible Cancel or OK buttons also leaves the selected graphic in a bad state: resizing it (though not moving it)  corrupts the fillGradient of the target -- it does not modify the points co-ordinates to reflect the new values [IMO an unhappy design decision to use stack co-ordinates rather than target co-ordinates for the from, via and to points in the gradient array]. It apparently leaves the target graphic in edit mode, because it can also display ramp handles in the target control which cannot be removed without relaunching LC.

And speaking of bugs I personally clearly have a proof-reading bug, I cannot believe the number of typos in that last post of mine.
