Right now the plugin just uses the size it is given by the parameters in
the embed tag and these are statically assigned (literally one size fits

This is a known issue with the current plugin. I have an updated version
pending to be published which will fix this problem (assuming you are on
a Mac).

Hmm, can you reproduce this behavior and maybe provide a stack dump by
trying to interrupt the network access?

Yes, for now you should turn off the flaps before saving the project.

Bob already answered part of your question so let me just add a comment
how to turn an ordinary web server into a super swiki:
the class HTTPServerDirectory support project servers that allow upload
vi ftp and download vi http. You can also upload the project file and
then add a link to a page using the squeakland project loader the way
Naala did.
