$1,000 Bounty For LiveCode Bug 20240

Ben Rubinstein via use-livecode
Hi,
 
Over at LiveCode Quality Control Centre (QCC) there is a Bug 20240 has been a
problem for me lately. 
 
I understand that a significant effort has been put into finding a fix over the
past years, but without success. The problem behaviour has been reported before,
my report is simply the latest one. And since it cannot be reproduced on demand
it is a tough one to solve.
 
There is a video of it at QCC at that shows what happens, if you have not come
across it yourself.
 
To encourage more eyes to look at the code, I have put up a bounty of $1,000AUD
to the individual who resolves the problem with a fix.
 
More details are in the bug report here:
 
http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=20240
 
If you have any questions about the bug, or the bounty, I can answer them here.
 
Note it is only Australian dollars, but depending on the exchange rate, or where
you live that might be a bonus?
 
Good luck! And I really hope to be able to reward someone with this money!

Ha! That was the bug all along!

Just kidding. I noticed that too. I was going to upload an mp4 so that more people could check it out, but that required downloading the AVI.

Yup I've seen that myself. I don't know what to do about it but close the script editor and reopen it. Seems to go away.

Thank you Warren. I use VLC for all my video playback needs. It generally
handles anything thrown at it, so I wasn't aware that the encoding may not be
compatible for everyone.

VLC is great, but it only works if you get past the download stage.

I think we've all seen it. It isn't necessary to close the editor though, I
just reselect and it works the second time.

Yeah, sometimes, but in my experience not always. I’ve had to resort to closing the affected tab at least.
