Bug of the week

Bug 18254 - Low performance of byte comparison in LiveCode 8.1

The reporter found that some comparisons involving raw binary data values were much slower in LiveCode 7+ than in LiveCode 6.7. The report contained a simple, helpful sample stack, a detailed recipe for reproducing the problem, and some results of comparison with previous versions of LiveCode. This made it possible to fix the problem promptly.

Help needed!
