Hello, Dr. Lunzer,
I happened to see your post to the squeak-dev ML, below.
So, I tried to install Vista and Squeakland plugin into my machine for checking.
Although the test page shows "broken picture" icon, as you say,
sample projects in the page http://squeakland.org/kids/sqfest_2004.htm or
http://squeakland.jp/kids/kidshome.html seems to work fine.
Have you also tried them?
BTW, I'm in Hokkaido Univesity, too.
If you want, I can visit your labo and check your machine configuration.
Please feel free contact with me.
