Launch is being changed to improve its security in two important ways: 1. Launch only works from the test panel -- so launched scripts can not launch others. 2. Launched scripts *should* always start with default security running, regardless of other monkey business that people do with the launch string. That's the basic idea. We really want to be able to use launch so if you see cases where the above is not the case or you think you see other risks involved with launch please let us know! The current behavior of launch isn't likely the final behavior, but we need something like launch in the meantime until we add mult-tasking. So let's patch the holes and make it useful. -jeff
