"Send in time". Hmmm

So the line "put start"  is actually delayed until after the wait command,
er, starts,  and gets stuck there?

And if one uses "wait with messages" that stuck command can worm its way out
and  back into play?

So then LC knows when the message box is about to be the target, and
therefore acts differently than with any other container. The actual already
executed  command "put" is left stranded, unrequited, because the next line
in sequence, not yet executed,  has foreknowledge that the upcoming target
is the message box, and is girding itself to access it?? 

Odd.

I am switching between the forum discussion about this and here.

The plain old wait command, (without "with messages") works fine when the
target field is on another stack. So it not the fact that the field is not
"local". There is something about the message box itself, ostensibly just a
stack, that matters. This is not the first time that msg has been caught
acting oddly.

 I am actually gratified to know that LC works "normally", as long as msg is
not in the mix.
