[Newbie] Morph class>>new

I want to write a method like:
MyMorph class>>withTitle: aString
^self basicNew withTitle: aString
title := aString.
Now I have seen that Morph implements the method "new" another way:
^super new initialize
^self basicNew initialize
Is there a reason for that? Is it dangerous to use the method I wrote?
BTW: I got a bit lost searching for the implementor of "new" - it should
be Behaviour, but Object is not a subclass of Behaviour?! I suppose
there is a really simple answer, so forgive me the stupid question.
BTW: I often forget to call "super initialize" in my
methods. This sometimes leads to Squeak crashing completely (not even
alt-. does help) when I open MyMorph in World. Could there be something
done about it?
BTW: It seems a bit strange to thank people in advance. But I would like
to use the chance now to thank all those people who had the patience to
answer my silly questions so far - especially Ned!
