Dear Daniel, I thought the description would be enough for a guru to identify if this was a bug or some problem from my side. As I said I couldn't reproduce the problem in simplified versions. If you want an instance of the code I can provide it. > There is an example of this at > http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2010/Jan/msg00155.html however I think for a while you provided enough information hinting that the problem lies on my side. I am calling external modules and this might result in locking variables. I'll study your link & come back here if I can't make sense of it. Thanks for your tips.
