 I'm using Squeak 3.9. I will update to 4.2 now to test if this makes any

 There should be half a second delay between it turning to 'Nought''s turn.'
 and then back again to 'Crosses''turn.' , because I added half a second
 delay to the performAI method which is performed inbetween the changes
 of the turn notifier. That you don't see this indicates to me that you
 have replicated my bug after all. Don't you see the changes to the turn
 notifier when you have a Transcript window open either? Because then it
 works for me. Anyway, I will update to Squeak 4.2 and see what happens.
