It seems I'm not the only one who got bitten by this change (several times - I'm a slow learner). 

Just wondering, is there a "troubleshooting" wiki somewhere that collects this sort of knowledge?  I'd love to see something organized by the many mysterious compile or execution failure messages, with likely trouble sources for each.  So when you get the inevitable "Runtime exception" popup with no further explanation, at least you have someplace to look it up, with a list of possible goofs to look for in your code.

And perhaps it would ease the frustration of the developers who uncover these issues, knowing they have someplace to report it where it will help others avoid the same difficulty.

Change the BASE_HEX to BASE_NONE.

Non-numeric types (FT_STRING, FT_BYTES, etc) now require BASE_NONE.
