Here's a pretty serious one that you might look out for - the KeySet display
loses the last column of keys in a window, when there are more keys than fit in
one window. Flipping through objects with the arrow keys in the KeySet window
will skip past the missing keys. Only if you resize the window to be big enough
to fit all the keys in the keyset will you be shown all of them.

PPS To a novice programmer like me this has the mark of a one-off error in some
array ... DDS
