No current list selected using $define in Studio 5.2.3

That is not a bug. The new Studio-style list commands, like list. 
$define or list.$search, does not depend on the 'current list' at  
all. They do not require the current list to be set. They do not use  
it at all. So try to get used to using them. There is very little  
that you can do with lists that require the 'current list' and the  
older commands that depend on it any more.

What exactly are you doing that requires the current list being set.  
Possibly we can suggest an alternative using the newer list commands.
