Squeaking trouble

Hi Bob, a tip that may help you.

When you experience lock ups hit ALT+. (dot). It will interrupt the 
currently executing operation on the GUI thread.  It's not that Squeak 
is blocking but the GUI process. When that happens the interrupt key 
will help you to figure out where the block happened, fix it and save 
your work. Nevertheless is good policy to treat your images as 
disposable and to save them frecuently :)
