I get behavior similar to Henrique’s on XP, and not just in the script editor. There, if I select a few lines, the lines below it disappear unless/until I extend the selection downward. Nothing’s actually deleted – if I click on the script window everything reappears.


Also, when opening a data or script file (user file), the folder icons in the ‘explorer’ window disappear and reappear if I scroll down the list with the mouse. This also happens if I use the scroll bar.


This is gretl 1.9.3cvs, built 1/24/11.

Subject: [Gretl-users] Script Editor: Very Strange Behavior


Dear Gretl Community,


Recently I've noted a very strange behavior inside the command script editor (under Windows Vista): when I select some lines they simply disappear and when I move the command prompt the lines come back. I think this is somewhat hard to describe, so if you want I can send a short video with the problem.
