Hi Rooters,

I forgot about just another annoying feature I encoutered with the windows 
version. Once a script is loaded and at some point the execution failed, 
root does not leave the script so it becomes impossible to access that 
script for writing purpose anymore. This makes the user having to quit his 
root session before he can correct his mistake. I did not have such 
problems with the Linux versions.

Thanks a lot,
