[Newbies] Saving DNU for later

Replying to myself: 

OK, the solution I have right now is to zoom in (halo) on the debug window until I get to the 
PluggableList, then from the red Menu button, I select "copy list to clipboard".  This gives me 
a textual representation.  (I tried doing "copy & print... > copy text" but it caused another 
DNU,  OrderedCollection doesNotUnderstand: #asText).

Is this the best/only way, digging into a morph's internals?  I shouldn't complain, I guess, 
since it's pretty cool to just dig at a UI's internals to get what you want.
