Re: [MacPerl] BBEdit 5.1/MacPerl

The BBEdit guys need to know about this. FWIW, there's a simple 
AppleEvent parameter that you can make that will tell MacPerl not to go 
flashing this dialog box, even if the option is enabled. I know this 
because I did it in the SuperMacPerl project I mentioned earlier today.
