Right, I figured it must have been a fix that got added post 3.7-official.

That could be a result of the undulating spheres I use for the clapper rope.
Ridiculous, but it was a quick cut & paste solution.
I'm running on 16 gig, but before I trimmed it down far enough I crashed it a
few times too.

Well, I wish I could have looked it over during the day, but the workbench with
the laptop is buried under piles of - you name it.

Got back home, did a full file search for "#declare" and found 2 lines without
semicolons (419 & 420).  Not sure why that would trigger an error higher up in
the file, but yes, something weird was going on.
Anyway, I'm back on track trying to hammer out something suitable.

Thanks for taking that quick look  :)
