Other bugs discovered by OS4.x users would seem to indicate some simian influence :-)

I'd say that broadblues has settled the issue with his autodoc quotes. I do read the autodocs but overlooked those important points regarding message disposal. However, I still think that simply setting "done=TRUE" & "break" in the message retrieval loop for a window close message or when an error is detected in a "CASE" item is inadequate. The loop will continue to retrieve messages and possibly be acted on by one of the other CASE items. If one of the CASE items has a function that produces a memory allocation failure, I don't think you want any other function calls attempted before exiting the program.
