That might have been related to what the problem was on the 120.
There's a ReorientToScreen function you've got to have in place for
NOS 2.x or the program won't rotate correctly, regardless of what
internal code you might set up otherwise. When launched on a 120, it
won't load in landscape at all, and if you try to rotate it, it'll
tell you some functions won't work.

Add that one function with a couple of other calls, though, and it's
supposed to be fine.

However, simply transferring the program shouldn't have activated any
part of it. It's little more than a couple of buttons and a couple of
views. It doesn't even touch any storage. So why installing/copying it
would force a reboot, I really have no idea.

The package, by the way, is being compiled out of NTK/Mac 1.6.4, not
DyneTK. As much as I like the modern freeware version, there are some
things - such as view flags - that are much easier to set in NTK, even
in emulation under Basilisk...

Anyway, thanks for giving it a go!
