Both good ideas. I must remember them.
For the specific case I have, I first tried Karl's idea with 'Debug
"<this_method> has already been executed." and I got 800+ lines in
stdout. Which is not a bad thing as I suspected an out of control loop
was happening and now I know it is.
Just "why" it is happening in an empty "else" block is interesting to
say the least, but probably due to some very old code somewhere not
near where I am looking.
