No, not exactly as you describe. Anyway my suspection is, that there could be "invisible characters" within your cell that could make the evaluation struggle and that you delete along with the ; and don't reenter when you put the ; back in place. To check for invisible characters you can use Ctrl-Shift-E (Alt-Shift-E on Mathematica 4 on Linux) within the problematic cell to see the raw content of the cell expressions. But be warned, this is sometimes difficult to read... Albert
