Getting back to fresh installation quirks, When I run a text file
a new !StrongEd starts up each time, I'll look back, I've  have fixed
this before, I'm just mentioning it as it might not be intended to
happen that way as the default.
My preference is to have hardwrap off by default because of it's
trickyness, I'm getting better at fixing that one.
