Yes, I agree. 

What I am wondering though is whether MY USAGE problem (loading a new
project in the IDE) CAN actually be fixed? I only noticed it when I
loaded and ran a little project that looks at what components exist and
can be loaded. It showed that all the components used in the previous
project were still loaded - which was a bit surprising until I thought
about it. If I load it in a new instance of the IDE it just lists gb,
gb.debug and gb.eval as being loaded - which is quite correct.

Re your libraries matters, yes that's why I wrote that gibberish in 
http://gambaswiki.org/wiki/doc/library?nl back in 2017. I wonder if it
is all still true? (I do note that someone has added some
misdirectional info about libraries vs components which is both untrue
and IMO should not have been added.)
