As Tom noted, when the line number is clicked in the Windows Do-file 
Editor, the entire line is highlighted and the cursor is placed on the
next line, causing both lines to execute.  We will work to get this 
fixed in a future update.  Until we release a fix, Tom should manually
select the line or lines he wants to execute.
