I am cc'ing the list, since this is probably of general interest.

This might be related to the dirty flag being set when an IEMGUI's  
properties are changed.  It was changed it so that when the  
properties of an IEMGUI was changed, the dirty flag was set.  I  
suppose there should be differentiation between it happening with  
messages and it happening when the user makes the change in the  
Properties panel.
