[Gambas-user] Program not starting

I find it's often a work flow issue.  A control is normally invisible on 
startup. To debug it, you select it, change its visible property to 
true.  Fix it. Run the program to test.  Then change to visible property 
back to false, not noticing that the selection has changed from the 
control to the form.

I was just hoping to save someone some frustration as this was a tough 
one to debug, as there were no messages, error or otherwise, just a 
careless mistake causing my program to exit unexpectedly.
