Right.  Also, until the bug gets fixed, a way to assure that an old  
project is immune from the problem is to open the project, and then,  
one by one, fix up each script by dragging it out from its  
corresponding viewer, which will get its layout fixed, then dismissing  
the script again; then re-save the project.
