I would guess this is to terminate the process on the current console
under Linux.

This is why I use REPLServer (telnet server for Squeak).

Install REPLServer, which should be available from SqueakMap or the
PackageUniverse. Start it and make sure it works. When Morphic breaks,
telnet to localhost on port 4445 and type in:

: utils rebootMorphic.

This will give you a fresh Morphic desktop where you can fix things
from. You can also manipulate processes from REPLServer.

I also save my image before each time I try to run my code if the code
is likely to be problematic.
