[Gambas-user] Check Boxes (a bug?)

One more question:
In the subroutine:
Public Sub AflagsGroup_Click()

    Dim myAflagsString As New String[]

    myAflags[Last.Tag] = Last.Value ' We set the value only on the flag
that changed and do not mess with the others.
    For Each myFlag As String In myAflags
        If myFlag Then myAflagsString.Add(myAflags.Key)
    LblAflags.Text = myAflagsString.Join(",")


My understanding is it runs through all the myAflags and adds all the
occurrences that are checked. If that's the case, then I don't understand
why it's not "removing" previously checked (and now unchecked) items?

Thanks for all your assistance!!
