And I found what is causing the problem! Here's Rebol/View with none of my Values scripts loaded:
>> rebol/version
>> script
** Script Error: script has no value ** Near: script And here's the new Rebol/Core 2.5.6:
>> rebol/version
>> script
== none The word 'script is used in Rebol/Core's start up and is set to 'none _after_ %user.r is processed. That means that any script that assigns a value to 'script, is going to fail under Rebol/Core 2.5.6. The temporary fix for Rebol/Core 2.5.6 is to not assign a value to the word 'script. The long term fix is for Rebol HQ to put 'script into a 'use block or object! context? Andrew J Martin ICQ: 26227169
