Glad you picked up on this Ken. Indicates that when we encounter "mysterious"
beeps, we should start by looking at the Editor environment rather than the
code - not that it will ALWAYS be that simple, but??

I was about to suggest that maybe Andy had inadvertently left in a "debugging"
beep. I frequently insert a series of "beeps" in code where I want to "easily"
trace program flow. I've been remiss at removing a few now and then and I
figured that Andy is ALMOST human.  *-}
