Thanks - I thought it odd that I had to explicitly call this initialize.  I
went back and took out the call to initialize just to be sure that was what
making the difference and it was. So for some reason my SymbolArray>>new is
not calling the method unlike all my other ones.  If I find that it is
something that I've done, I'll be sure to let the forum know.

It can, so I wouldn't conclude so quickly, or cargo-cult this one
without some more research.

Behavior>>#new calls #initialize, so someone broke the chain between there
and your classes of interest by overriding #new without respecting the
existing protocol.
