associated with Wonderland actors (the objects that are most 
notably lingering in the image).

older 3.2 image reveals that my 3.4 image includes 
Object>>when:evalaute, and that #when:send:to: and friends are 
written in terms of it instead of #when:perform: as in 3.2.  I find this 
suspicious because #when:evaluate: was removed from Dolphin 
quite some time ago, specificially because it was causing 
problems with large networks of objects that were immune to the
