Hi, Antonio,

One thing to try is "attempt misc repairs," found in the "authoring  
tools" menu.  In some images you may need to have the eToyFriendly  
preference turned off to see this item.

And if you have a project that remains inexplicably bloated, please  
email it privately to one or more of the usual Etoys developers, and  
we'll be happy to have a look and see what we can find.
