[Newbies] The bouncing sound

Hi, polishookm,

I cannot reproduce the phenomenon you describe in any image I have  
close to hand -- not in Squeak 3.9, not in Squeakland3.8-05, and not  
in the OLPC etoys image.   (Can anyone else?)

What version of Squeak are you using?  If it's 3.10, I'll leave it for  
other 3.10 users to track this down, since I don't have a copy of 3.10  

Otherwise, perhaps you could email me a copy of a project of yours  
which exhibits this symptom...
