Thanks to Steve for duplicating the error on Mac. I was trying it on Ubuntu 
12.04 and don't have a Mac handy. The behavior appears to be platform-specific. 
Steve's suggestion to use "round up strays" is an excellent one, esp. when 
combined with "fence enabled" for the world. It prevents objects from 
disappearing off the screen.

Please ignore my other suggestions about deleting onion skins and tracing 
objects through debug. Those are unnecessarily complicated and off-track. The 
juice is not worth the squeeze.

Regards .. Subbu
