HOTSTART gets hopelessly tangled in a temp file catch-22 and window ID mismatch

The TBEditor temp files somehow get tangled so that the Editor cannot find *FREE (?) and previously open files can no longer be saved (also the editor can no longer be cleanly closed and shutdown) without constant complaining about window ID mismatches. From that point on the Editor is useless and must be cleaned up.

To clean-up the Editor without reinstalling I removed all temp files including the TB config file; then, after opening the TBEditor I turned OFF HOTSTART in the settings.

temp files removed to cleanup

sorry, these are the temp files I had to remove to fix the catch-22 in TBEditor:

_TBCOMP
_TBTEMP
TBEDITS.CFG
TB.ERR
_TBTMP
TB_UDAL1.TXT
TB_UDAL2.TXT
