A quick one today.
I recently ran into a bizarre issue with SharePoint 2010 lists, where even though I'd configured the list to display its display / edit form as a dialog, it was instead displaying it in a new page (ie, replacing the current page). This however only occurred when I included the list as a web part on another page - not on the main list pages.
I noticed that there was a script error being reported on the page when the link to display / edit the list item was clicked, with an error along the lines of "undefined is null or not an object" in either "core.js" or "inplview.js".
