Issue I355 [80,batchmode,high,resolved]
  "fastadj" command in batch mode program may cause subsequent command to
    terminate when run in GUI mode.
  Reported by rbalthazor-20070124-
    If a Lua batch mode program (e.g. "batch.lua") calls
    simion.command("fastadj ..."), and if
    this batch.lua program is run in the SIMION GUI
    ("Run Lua Program" button), it may prematurely terminate
    subsequent commands such as simion.command("fly ...").
    The program is not affected if run instead from the SIMION
    command-line mode ("simion.exe --nogui lua batch.lua").
  Workarounds in 8.0.1:
    Workaround #1:
      Run the batch mode program from a command-line (cmd.exe)
      window instead. For example, assuming your project folder
      is "c:\temp\test" and batch program is "batch.lua",

        cd /d c:\temp\test
        "c:\program files\simion-8.0\simion.exe" --nogui lua batch.lua 
    Workaround #2:
      Ensure your potentials always
      change during a fast adjust.  So, instead of
        simion.command("fastadj test.pa0 1=50,2=100")
      do this:
        simion.command("fastadj test.pa0 1=0,2=0")
        simion.command("fastadj test.pa0 1=50,2=100")

  Affects: 8.0.0-8.0.1
  Resolved in 8.0.2.
