They "worked for me" - I was dragging a Morph around, and had readouts 
for the start and end positions of the dragging. Try making a completely 
fresh subclass of Morph with only the methods I suggested. I used Squeak 

If I was going to implement momentum, I'd take the current position on 
mouseUp: and the position received by the very latest mouseStillDown:, 
and work out which vector the puck should travel in from that. I suppose 
you'd also need the times of those two events as well to calculate the 
velocity vector.
