i tried installing, using the ubuntu software center,
the official "Squeak" and "eToys" packages.
both give me the same behaviour as described in the
original bug report.
(the vm is in /usr/lib/squeak/3.11.3.-2147,
so i guess that is the vm version i am using).

i am using ubuntu 10.04 on an oldish sony vaio z600,
ca 600mhz cpu, 500mb ram

any help or hint is very much appreciated.
