As far as I found, the "list" action get's cached in the ExecuteActions and if found the action is not executed, but rather the action is ignored. While perfectly suitable for fppkg which is only run once though and then exits, the GUI version stays active and can run the same actions multiple times.  This makes me think that I should probably create a Laz_ExecuteAction procedure and keep the original procedure in tact. I will create a patch for it.
