Great, it would be nice to find out what happened on your other machine...

Yes that demo/test  code at the end of the module could be cleaned up a bit!

I was using a multi-column list box (part of the Pmw Contrib I think)
but a new project at work required a column with images in.  This is why 
I started this whole thing.

I would like to get the cell editing tested - I have not even switched
it on yet!  Only trouble is I don't have a good enough reason (not
project that requires it!)
