    Project works then doesn't

    justSteve.com
      I'm working on a project that initially compiles and runs correctly. I
      change a mx:Label control to a mx:TextArea - no other property changes
      at all:

      <mx:VBox label="{data.foo}">
      <mx:Label text="{data.bar}"/>
      </mx:VBox>
      becomes:
      <mx:VBox label="{data.foo}">
      <mx:TextArea text="{data.bar}"/>
      </mx:VBox>


      No pre-compile problems listed but running the project gets:

      TypeError: Error #1006: getInstance is not a function.
      at mx.core::Singleton$/getInstance()[E:\dev\flex_3_beta2\sdk\frameworks\projects\framework\s rc\mx\core\Singleton.as:65]
      at mx.core::UIComponent$cinit()
      at global$init()[E:\dev\flex_3_beta2\sdk\frameworks\projects\framework\src\mx\core\UICompone nt.as:817]
      at global$init()[C:\Documents and Settings\ME\My Documents\Flex
      Builder 3\Campus\src\MenuLister.mxml:4]
      <<
      <<

      Even stranger....changing the control back to a Label does _not clear
      the error. Meaning i'm back to code that 20 seconds ago worked and now
      doesn't.

      The first time this happened I set in some breakpoints in a few
      different files looking to see where the muckup occurred...didn't find
      anything - but while looking the code started working again.

      The second time I can only punt to you guys.
