This has just happened to me in 4.3.1. I can't ever remember it happening 
quite like this. I've been working on a window all afternoon and it was 
looking really neat. All nicely coded and working beautifully.

I shut down Studio and re-opened and what have I got? The window I had at 
noon with hardly anything on it. I thought I was imagining things to start 

Time to start all over again. Grrrrr!
