The reason your editor window disappears is because your script's main layout grabs the editor's face. Change the script's "view layout" to view/new layout and the editor window should stay open, though you may lose control of it till your script finishes running. However, depending on how your script works, the above change my stuff it up. Also, errors in your script will cause your editor to crash too unless you capture them at the point you do the script. My approach would be to just launch another REBOL and run your script in its Console. Then all the script's errors will appear there and you'll be able to examine its variables and so on from there too. This is how I work anyway, though my editor's not written in REBOL and so I only need the one REBOL running.
