It's because all the View elements are dumped IH> into system/words, and if you do a probe on it, the big object is walked IH> through, creating a really long string on the way, which is then IH> printed. I have heard of computers on which it took nearly an hour, and IH> some others never returned, IIRC. Aren't there circular references that contribute to the issue as well? -- Gregg
