I think Karl is talking about something else. After you've dropped something
in the world (it doesn't really matter what) you'll get a flash for all of
the flap (tab) areas. This happens because of the attempt of moving all
those flaps and tabs to the front. So how about implementing

PasteUpMorph>>addMorphFront: aMorph
	^self addMorphInLayer: aMorph.

This should prevent many of these (almost always unnecessary) redraws.
