Just to follow up.  It is not just happening in a DataGrid group script.  I 
just opened a main stack script.  It has almost 600 lines.

Something Odd going on.  I am just new to using LiveCode on Windows as I am now 
working on an application  for release on Mac and Windows.  However I have 
edited many of the scripts in this project before and have never seen this.  

Again if anyone has ideas as to what might be happening or how to trouble shoot 
that would really be appreciated.
