I've yet to find squeak 3.7a on unix. (See my earlier email today about

I've closed all the windows (on the 3.6g unix version) and that seems to
help a little, it's now hovering just over 1% per image. Ok, I've doubled
the number of images to a 100. Now to add an infinite number (up to ram and
disk swap space limits) by figuring out the last 1% and having squeak sleep
with it's gui active! Any ideas?

The gui is still polling right?

All the best,
