Actually, what I should have asked is where is the Blender DNA detecting
the difference and reallocating the struct, so I can see what it's doing?

A symptom of the problem, which I saw last week but didn't understand, 
is that none of the script names showed up in the text box in the Script 
panel, even though Blender knew there were 3 script.
