Thanks for the response!! Here's a bit more info:
Using OS X 10.5.6
I have `rebview' parked in my Dock
I click on the "exec" (rebview) icon and I get:
1. A "terminal" window with a single tab containing:
[09:38:15][dnormandin-tigger:~]$ /Users/dnormandin/downloads/rebol-276\ 2/rebview ; exit;
2. The "REBOL -ViewTop" window with: "Welcome to REBOL/View 2.7.6
When I click on the "Console" icon, the "tab" in #1 above reads:
REBOL/View 126.96.36.199.4 15-Mar-2008

I should say that I DLed the OSX PPC version, only because the OSX
Intel link at http://www.rebol.com/view-platforms.html is pooched.
Are you running the Intel flavor?
So far, everything seems normal, until I go back to the desktop and
then click the "Console" icon again to re-enter the REBOL console. I
am returned to the same OSX terminal window; same "terminal" tab, but
a new instance of the interpreter. WTF.....? I might as well be using
BrainF..k for the headache I'm getting.... ;)) Thanks!
