[squeak-dev] #07212 flaps render *properly* during StandardSystemFontsTest

Hi Timothy,

:-) I am really happy you posted this. 
It means someone else notices the small symptoms of big bugs, too.

If you run some of the font tests. 
The fonts will change and then be restored the defaults.
Changing the flap fonts causes the flaps to be laid out again. 
This may either accidentally and temporarily cure
 the off-by-one/roundoff error that affects the flaps.
There are some other bugs in flaps as well.
 I made repairs for them but I don't know and rather doubt
whether they actually got into 3.10.2.

If you view sub issues of #7212 on mantis
 you can see what else has been discoved.
(http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=6486 is one of the main reports.)

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jeorme Peace
