Hmm, I wonder where my first reply went. Into the bitbucket I assume.
Anyway, I checked it out - bug is present in 3.2 too (on Win32).

It seems that the FlashMorph>>fullDrawOn: sends #asBalloonCanvas to the
canvas it gets - but that happens to be a ClippingCanvas which doesn't
understand that. I noted that there are only a few "sister canvases"
that understands that - not the pluggable ones.

Anyway, so it is due to the animated mouse and it's seems like an old
bug. Nobody seems to have tried saving the top Project before! :-)
