I know, that's why I didn't report it. I scoured the script looking for a difference but I couldn't find anything, the two queries were executed by the same handler. I looked for anything that would empty the variable and that wasn't there either. My current theory is creeping stack

I don't mean to oversimplify, but when customers call complaing that only one of several scan to SMB registrations is failing, I have to get them to see that if all the others are not failing ever, it cannot be a problem with the copier. If only one script local is getting reset, then it

This might explain the bizarre bug I'm experiencing with one of Monte's externals. I manage the calls to the various routines for the external from a library stack. Periodically, I end up somewhere in the code that I shouldn't be able to get to because of the values of various variables, and the

I have a splash stack that opens a data stack from a server. The data stack has a substack which is used as a library with "start using". The handlers in the library work okay. Some of them store data in script local variables in the library script. The script locals do not retain their
