Only Etoys does that. It's the only image that has the  
startInUntrustedDirectory preference set, AFAIK. All other images  
default to the image directory.

"My Squeak" used to be the directory name for etoys projects. Nobody  
bothered to change the default yet, because it is not used anyway  
(etoys is always launched by a script).
