Nope: command doesn't stop the error message.
Out of curiosity I then tried   *help keyextendverifyclients   and got 
the respons "No help found".  Maybe I don't have whatever module this 
is.  (using Iyonix 5.18)

No StrongEd windows are open, hidden or iconized.

Among other apps on my iconbar is Druck's Workspace 5, whose 
"Fetch window" option gives a list of any applications that have 
windows, no matter whether they are open, hidden or iconized -- and 
nothing is listed for StrongEd.
