I think that I saw an option somewhere (but can't remember where) to select between absolute/relative Safe Z position, so if you select it to be relative, the problem should be solved, and tool should be raised above material for the safe z value first, then go to y0, x0.

P.S. It would be nice if somebody could remember where is this option.

If your running the latest version, it is in the config, safe z set up I think.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

My guard dog is not what you need to worry about!
Got a way to turn safe Z off in teh program itself.  You see, I have this one step that involves a Keyseat cutter, a $120 keyseat cutter.  In teh event I get something weird happen.  I don't want the first thing that will take place to be a safe Z move.  I want the cutter to clear out of teh slot and then safe Z move.   
Suppose you could do it with a macro, but a lesser chore would be to modify the code as necessary to insure that the X or Y moves the cutter well clear before the Z makes a move.   and always test run the code in air first to verify.
That would be my approach as I have little to spend on cutters and mistakes myself.
