I'll try this... but I'm _real_ hesitant to use low-memory globals 
directly nowadays. I know it would be unlikely to work in the Blue Box of 
Rhapsody; _maybe_ not even on Mac OS 8.2. Apple has said "don't do that" 
a lot lately.

Could check the environment and use it only on 68K machines running "less 
than" 8.2... which may be the ones having a problem with MOUSE(_down)... 
Anyway, worth looking at! Thanks!

(P.S. 8.2 Finder is "wicked fast" on a G3. Like the difference between a 
6400 and a G3 running System 7.6... And no, I don't have a copy on my 
Mac. <sigh>)
