It is relaxed for the Rebol session the script runs in. It is not something that is associated with the script. Conceptually there is a minimum set of permissions that your script needs in order to complete successfully. If the Rebol session your script runs in has a higher level of security than what you script can run in you will get the dialogue box popping up. Or if you are running the session in quite mode, then the session is terminated because it is treated as a failure.

I believe so.

Fair enough. The points should be made clear. Keep asking :) Brett.
