Thanks for confirming problem. I've repeated the procedure with Pi in
ARMv5 mode and although I can carry out the procedure without the
'abort on data transfer at &00020408' error it doesn't eliminate the
original CtrlTab problem.

In ARMv5 mode the procedure appears to work correctly - SED found 54
occurrences of CtrlTab and replaced it with Regular and
List-of-Windows listed all the files found with an asterisk by each to
inform me that they had been changed. I saved all the changes but
CtrlTab still appears on every mode I tested - curious!!

Looks as though Fred may have to intervene - maybe your StrongDump
file will help find this bug.
