Yeah, that's the next idea I had. Still doesn't work. Just for fun, I
changed the

Go to and Play ("some frame label")


Go to and Stop ("some frame label")

This works perfectly. Of course, the frame of the MC in question is
sort of a "still" as it just contains a static image (JPEG file) and the
frame itself contains a Stop command. So I guess either I'm in the
dark about the difference between Go to and Play for a single frame
and Go to and Stop for a single frame.
