[AppBasic] DrawScript Filetype Problem

When I attempt to save an edited DrawScript file, the save box either 
shows the &000 filetype icon or the Drawscript filetype icon, but in 
either case the saved file gets the filetype &000. I can prevent this 
by typing &b9b into the field of the save box or, of course, by 
retyping the saved file.

This happens when using StrongED as editor, which is the recommended 
editor for DrawScript. I tried to follow the instructions in the 
readme of the StrongED upgrade for DrawScript, but they seem to be for 
an earlier version of StrongED when there was only one ModeWhen file 
for all the modes, whereas in current versions of StrongED there is a 
ModeWhen file in each Mode directory. I decided to stick the two 
suggested extra lines
   ! b9b,**
in a ModeWhen file in the supplied !Draw directory (to go inside the 
Modes directory). I deleted the pling as with it the Draw mode didn't 
appear in the Create list in the StrongED iconbar menu.

Any Suggestions?
