By the way, once it's done this it corrupts the application.  Just
removing the uses reference won't let the application work anymore.

Is it corrupting the frmmain lfm or resource somehow?

I compared a before and after and the frmmain.lfm adds a 
line to the form object - that's the only difference I noticed.  The
form with the VISIBLE = TRUE set doesn't work when you launch the app.

Not saying that's the problem, mind you...
