I have almost no experience with etoys in 3.9, so can't speak to this
issue -- sorry.
I've not heard of such issues arising in the versions of Squeak in
which the etoys piece has been actively maintained, i.e. Squeakland
and olpc/etoys. It would be interesting to hear if your students
encounter the same problems using one of those systems -- if so,
please send along a project illustrating the problem.
Finally, one last time, if you want a modern, up-to-date, documented,
*supported* etoys experience, you'd be well advised to use the olpc/
etoys squeak image (or the forthcoming Squeakland release derived from
that). These are *not* dumbed-down Squeaks; the "dev" versions are
full-scale, industrial-strength Squeak systems, encompassing all of
3.8, plus Connectors, and incorporating countless enhancements and
fixes. And a responsible and responsive development team. And,
blessedly, an update stream.
There are two mailing lists devoted to uses of Squeak in education --
