Beware with FMP 16 : Windows based variables BROKEN

With prior versions (since 11 at least), it was possible to index a global variable upon a window (a window based variable). The trick used was to pass in the repetition of the variable the expression Code ( Get ( WindowName ) ). You get a tremendous number with, lets say, maybe 30 digit, but it worked like a charm as a repetition number. The new version broke this technique since it seems the repetition of a variable only retain the 17 last digits.
