Hi, Max -
This was a known problem/bug which we have fixed.  I suspect you are 
not using a fully updated version of the Squeak PlugIn; if not I urge 
you to load all updates to date. (To check if you are fully updated 
get the World menu by clicking command/shift W or alt/shift W).  Then 
select "help" and then "About this system"....your latest update # 
should be 161.
Note:  Projects created earlier and loaded into a fully updated image 
may still have this problem.  NEWLY created projects saved/stored and 
reloaded should not have this graphics problem.
Should you experience additional problems let us know.
