Can I know when #startUp is happening for the first time?

Ah hah!  I was using the message without the parameter, so I couldn't tell. 
Now I see it is actually #startUp: that is sent.  Thanks, Jon!

The argument to the #startUp: method is a boolean, which tells you whether
it is an image save or a fresh start... The name of the argument is
misleading, however. Most methods call it 'resuming', but how it works is
it is false on an image save, and true on an image start...
