The error message is written directly (VDU4?) to the screen, and not in a

Yes, I used to get this, and it turned out to be all my fault;
however, this may not be relevant to Paul's problem.
Being lazy, I usually run NetSurf from a keystroke in !Keystroke (now,
I wonder, does Paul use NextBar?) My mistake was to have just
NetSurf's full pathname in Keystroke's setup window, instead of having
it preceded with Filer_Run. This worked fine the first time NS was
run; however, if it was already on the icon bar, which I had
forgotten, and tried to run it again from Keystroke, I got exactly the
same error message, and in the same manner, that Paul describes.
Having got the correct syntax in Keystroke it's never happened again.
Maybe there's a pointer to the problem here?
