This bug seems to have been introduced by an inadvertent change in update #1507, "imgLibrary-tkLM", in which, in the method HandMorph.initialize, the line that initialized the "mouseOverTimes" instance variable got removed.

The fix is simply to revert that method to its prior version.  We'll shoot the fix through the update stream promptly.

(This bug may explain why peole were having some difficulty getting balloon help for the halo handles!)

Set your display depth to 16 or 32 to get the translucency option in the color picker.
