I spoke too soon, the error message that is shown is - 'compiler-macro
error for cl--block-wrapper: (error "Lisp nesting exceeds
`max-lisp-eval-depth`")'. To my untutored eye this sounds like
something that happened when it was compiled? Agreed? If so, then I'll
recompile it tomorrow and try again.

Thanks
Sharon.
