IMPORTANT NOTE: If an object is transferred to a new owner and the script not reset, llGetOwner() will continue to return the value of the PREVIOUS owner rather than the new one (this has been reported as a bug in the JIRA system). This can be overcome by resetting the script, but this requires either a manual reset (which is cumbersome) or using an llResetScript() function upon rezzing. Since it is inefficient and in many cases undesirable to reset a script every time an item is rezzed, the following simple one-line workaround is preferrable:
+
 
+
changed(integer change){if (change & CHANGED_OWNER){llResetScript();}}
+
This event checks to see if the owner has changed and if such is the case, resets the script one time.
