Ah - thanks Bo. Never realsed that. I thought it was something specifically to do with REBOL.

Which may mean you're using NewIcons - perhaps. They look like this, anyway... *** DON'T EDIT THE FOLLOWING LINES!! *** IM1=BAA!E=D0=D0=D0=D0=D0=D0=D0 ... IM1==B6F=AAL=A5=B9=D2 IM1==D3@=B2c&,8P=B2c&, ... plus lots more lines...

Bummer. :-(
It may have something to do with it, though I suspect it's more likely a clash with your ICQ or some other program. I'm using AmigaOS 3.0 and find REBOL very stable.

Time (and probably a lot of it) will tell...

I have virus checking, but no, it's not a virus, as it's been there from the start. BTW, have you tried View yet, or only Core? All of Core is in View, but it has a GUI for installing, so may give you different results. Graphic will be very slow with it on Amiga though if you don't have a gfx-card. -- Carl Read
