>Looks as though Balazs has identified the cause but I'll check it tonight. Two questions: 1. Where is the project being dragged from? 2. Does "menubar" mean "World menu / load project from file" or the Projet menu on the DockingBar, or something else?

1) The lazy mans way to load projects is to drag the .pr file iconicly from its folder and drop it onto an open sq image window. Squeak then loads and opens the project. 

2) The trunk menubar calls itself the docking bar. so the #loadProject message is sent to it. But the docking bars method handles things by sending WorldMenu the same #loadProject message.

>Jerome - did you submit a bug report to Mantis?

I have not. I was hoping I passed the responsibility back to Edgar. He reported the original problem so I am hoping he takes the lead. Also needs the practice IMO.
