The Toolbar is from SmallLand... it's not enabled by default, thus is  
never got tested. Back when we did the merge of SmallLand, I hoped  
that the Smallland
peopel would use (and test) this, but they did not, at least we got  
no fixes after the big merge. Nevertheless, I think it was good to  
have 3.9 as a mergepoint between
SqueakLand/SmallLand and Squeak.org, even if it turned out that  
neither SmallLand nor SqueakLand ever had a look.
