Looks like you've found a workaround. Not sure off the top of my head whether Squeak leaves anything in the system library or the user account library, but moving something out of app support in there often fixes stuff like this.

Just a thought.

I've not yet figured out how keyboard shortcuts are managed, which is driving me somewhat nuts. I'd rather it did *nothing* than pop an unexpected dialog wherein clicking the wrong thing can cause me to lose work...
