Something seems amiss. If I open a ChangeSorter, in the upper left 
pane, no matter what I do, I can't get the highlighting to extend 
more than one item. At the moment this is with 3.3a-4816 on Mac 
Squeak 3.2.6Beta8.app VM. I was also seeing this at work on W2000, 
3.3a-4816. Will check further when I get in.
