Tony, thanks for the response.
When I do this "in-circuit", when I activate Vcc, MCLR will also rise to
Vcc.  Then I am raising MCLR from Vcc instead of from ground.  Also, since
the chip in installed on a target board, the OSC pins are hooked up, so I
would think the chip would actually "run" for the period of time between
activating Vcc and raising MCLR.  This is the mode of operation I'm trying
to get a handle on.
Thanks again for the help.
