After doing some installation updating:

  'Squeak3.8 of ''5 May 2005'' [latest update: #6665] 1.5'

The Mac Finder's info on NPSqueakStubCFM is 3.5.1bC1; NPSqueak.bundle  
is 3.8.8b7.

I mentioned the issue to one of the Croquet programmers (also running  
Tweak), and he (Peter Moore) mentioned that he recalled that we have  
seen this problem before (in standalone Squeak). He thinks one of the  
other guys might have a workaround. I'll check that out tommorrow.
