Pretty Print bug?

Man I know the problems with unimplemented selectors. I would love to turn
that off. Actually what I would really like is that it gave you the warning
ONCE and then if I continue it wouldn't warn me again.

I don't think my problem is based on error messages because it will occur
even if the method is correct. As I said it is intermittent and can occur
with a one line method.

I think something is happening when accepting the method that changes the
display to a decompiled view. Something is refreshing the browser window

Any pointers on where I should start looking would be greatly appreciated as
I have no idea where to even start.
